Rejected petition Add UK's colonial past to the primary and secondary compulsory curriculum

Presently, in Britain students and pupils are not educated on Britain's partake in colonialism and teaching black history should be mandatory across a range of subjects. This petition will allow the government to acknowledge the partially flawed education system, and make these topics compulsory.

More details

Institutions such as schools must review the curriculum and make the teaching of black history mandatory. Fundamental information was retained from the curriculum for a substantial amount of time which is unbeneficial for BAME (Black, Asian, Minorities and Ethnics) communities and supports a poor representation of people of colour, the lack of knowledge also contributes to a unfair systematic power. This must change!
