Petition The Hillsborough stadium disaster should be included in the National curriculum.

In 1989, 96 Liverpool fans were unlawfully killed at Hillsborough during the FA Cup Semi Final. There are 1000s of school children today that have little knowledge about the disaster. I propose that it should be included in the National Curriculum at key stages 3 and 4.

I am head of Geography and Citizenship at South Wirral High School and for the past 4 years we have held a "Hillsborough day" for year 10. The day includes 4 key lessons: the truth, the fight for justice, the role of the media and the legacy on football. The day has been so well received by year 10. I want every child in the country to learn the truth about the events that day so that no child grows up with misconceptions about Hillsborough. Importantly, I want the legacy of the 96 to live on.
