Micheal Gove MP Secretary of State for Education
United Kingdom

We believe that it is important to include politics education into personal and social education in secondary schools. Many leave school with little or no understanding of the importance of politics and the impact that it has on their everyday lives.

We believe that this lack of understanding leads to ignorance and apathy.

This matter is even more important considering that there have been campaigns to reduce the voting age to 16.

It is our opinion that many do not understand , or appreciate the value of their vote, and that this needs to be addressed in order to have a true democracy.

We, the undersigned, call on Secretary of State for Education, Micheal Gove, to implement a basic coverage of politics and the electoral system, including how to vote into personal and social education.

It is our opinion that this will stimulate enthusiasm in our democracy.
