Rejected petition Include more ethnic minority figures in all schools curriculums.

The current school curriculum is flooded by white British figures who are outdated and overused. We need more ethnic minority Sociologists, writers, artists etc.

More details

This ethnocentric curriculum alienates ethnic minority children and makes them grow up to believe that they don’t matter to the country that they live in and people who look like them can’t/don’t enter those career paths. That’s why primary schools and secondary schools of all types should change the curriculum.
