2 cultures turn 50

Today is the 50th anniversary of CP Snow's (in)famous "2 cultures" lecture. My impression is that the rift is alive and well, and UK education is actively digging it deeper by forcing pupils to decide at 16 which culture they choose. As most will only have 3 subjects for A levels, many will end up doing 3 from the science/maths side, others do 3 from the humanities.
