Public patricipation education

Public patricipation education

An effort should be made to introduce components in the secondary school syllabus to teach the basics of political education. This wouldn't be partisan but would include a great emphasis on critical thinking and the understanding of rhetoric in politics. We need an informed electorate.

Points

A critically able electorate will produce a stable, functioning democracy! This is not the current position and as educators we have a responsibility to strive towards it!

An informed and critical electorate is the cornerstone of a well-functioning democracy.
