Roger Crofts on the value of Geography

I've met Roger Crofts fairly regularly over the last six years or so when attending the SAGT conference, or visiting the Royal Scottish Geographical Society.
He's a great supporter of school geography.
He's written a great piece in 'The Scotsman'.
There are some very useful quotes for those needing to remind people of the value of our subject.

Geography is a key ­subject for all future citizens, as it opens the whole world to pupils, improves their ­global view and provides a ­context for learning numeracy and literacy. Let’s make the most of it, as geography is the ­subject of our time.
