Closed petition Add ethics to the national curriculum for primary schools

I wish for the Government to make it mandatory for at the very least a simplified form of ethics to be taught to primary school students. This is in an attempt to counteract unethical/racial views that may be forced upon them at a young age.

More details

Despite what some may think, the UK is not innocent when it comes to discrimination. A lot of disgraceful acts of unethical behaviour take place daily and are not noticed. In an attempt to stop this I believe that ethics being taught from a young age could help quash unethical views forced upon children by their parents.
