The Long Listen: Why isn’t there a GCSE in agriculture?
JB Gill said he is “baffled” that young people don’t know more about where their food comes from and thinks agriculture should be given a far more prominent place on the school curriculum.
The former JLS member spoke to students and teachers from Hadlow College and from Brockhill Park Farm School as part of a special report for BBC Radio 5 live.
Teacher Donna Ashlee told him: “Learning about where your food comes from has such intrinsic value to people’s lifestyles, how they live.
“It’s shocking how people – educated people – have so little idea of where their food comes from.”
