The BBC says:

Countryside classes should become a compulsory part of the national curriculum, according to a magazine.

Country Life made the call as part of its manifesto to protect and save Britain's countryside.

They believe children living in cities need a better understanding of how the countryside works.

Does Country Life (the magazine for very rich people who are or want to pretend to be residents of country house estates) run the very same article every N years? Britain's countryside does not need "saving" by the people who want to save it. Countryside classes (which no doubt would be some politically correct mush) should not "become a compulsory part of the national curriculum", there are far, far more important subjects to teach kids.
