Simon , merging Drama with English as they have done in the UK will mean that , like in the UK , it just won't get done...which would be sad. It sounds like you had a bad experience with performance , but drama is so much more than that. Process drama is an amazing way of exploring a theme in depth , allowing children to imagine themselves as different characters and bringing history and stories to life. It helps children gain insights into how people's minds work and why they decide to behave in certain ways. I agree the drama curriculum badly needs to be updated and made more accessible, but it would be a real shame to take away it's discrete time.
