The Campaign for Political Education
Target: United Kingdom Parliament
Region: United Kingdom
Web site: http://edupol.blogs.lincoln.ac.uk/
Petition Background (Preamble):
As a group, young people have the lowest turnout in elections and we believe this means that they are underrepresented in politics.
We believe that political education must become a part of the National Curriculum for secondary school children, that schools should take a leading role in encouraging young people to vote by practicing using democratic systems in the classroom and that every effort must be made to increase the understanding of, and interest in, politics among young people.
