Fury as rise of Islam is seen as teaching priority over World War One and Two in schools
by Anil Dawar
Britons of all ages regard changes to the teaching of history as a massive mistake and an insult to the soldiers who died fighting for their country.
As the centenary of the First World War approaches, a new poll shows there is outrage that defining moments and figures in British history can be relegated below the rise of Islam and civilisations of West Africa and South America.
Eight out of 10 Britons oppose moves allowing schools to stop teaching about Britain's role in the World Wars to concentrate on "world history". Fewer than one in 10 thinks schools should be allowed to duck lessons on the sacrifices of millions of soldiers.
