Our CEO, Tom Franklin, gave oral evidence to the Committee last Wednesday, alongside others involved in citizenship education. He said,
“It has never been more important that young people learn the the knowledge and skills – and develop the confidence – to be active citizens. Yet citizenship education is being allowed to wither on the vine in schools. We’re calling on the Select Committee to call out the Government on its failure to support this vital part of young people’s education.”
A transcript of the evidence will be available shortly, in the meantime an audio recording is available from BBC Parliament.
