Hmmmm.......

Interesting, they've also missed out a connection between practicals and behaviour, if I have a group which repeatedly shows they can't comply with expectations with regards to their behaviour then they don't get practicals, depending on how bad their behaviour is they might have demo's removed too. Also fieldtrips have been turned into a somewhat contensious issue with all the red tape to get through, also I'd say that with the push for the main three (chemistry, biology and physics) then other sciences that fieldwork might suit more (geology and environmental science) get squeezed out, same with things like astronomy.
