Almost three-fifths of the British public think that religious studies should be replaced by politics in secondary school, a new survey shows.
As reported by Tes, a survey of 2,000 people, commissioned by the political youth platform Shout Out UK, found that 92 per cent believe politics should be compulsory in the national curriculum.
In addition, 52 per cent of respondents said that it should replace religious studies.
According to the survey, many people felt they would have benefited from learning more about politics at school.
In addition, 78 per cent of participants said they felt like they had left school with little or no knowledge on politics.
Eighty-four per cent also said that most of what they know had to be learned externally from school, such as through the use of the internet, or talking to family.
