+ - English physics teachers asks for his subject back->

An anonymous reader writes: An open letter to the English government regarding the ways in which they've broken physics education in secondary schools. The gist is that students are being taught a qualitative, subjective subject instead of physics in its quantitative glory. From the letter:
