Motion text

That this House recognises the importance of civic education as part of the national curriculum; is concerned at the level of disengagement from the political process on the part of many young people; believes that there is an urgent need to help young people develop their understanding of the political and democratic process and of the opportunities for public participation and to exercise the rights and responsibilities of citizenship; and calls on the Government further to develop civic education by promoting lessons specifically designed to provide better understanding on the part of young people of the opportunities to participate in and shape the political process.
