Should young people have a say on what is taught in Relationships and Sex Education (RSE)?

07th - 14th June 2024

With the Department of Education's recent announcement to review of the statutory RSE guidance, we gave voters the chance to share their views on what they currently learn about relationships.

Secondary, 16+ & College voters were asked: “Should young people have a say on what is taught in Relationships and Sex Education (RSE)?”, while Primary 9-11 voters discussed: “Do you get enough relationships education in school?”, and Primary 5-9 voters considered: “Does school help you with your relationships?”

42,264 young people in the UK have taken part in this vote.

Elections & Rewards VT

Is giving rewards for voting a good idea?

10th - 17th May 2024

With as much as 49% of the world’s population taking to the polls this year, we wanted to ask young people about incentivised voting: would rewarding people for exercising their democratic right help tackle dwindling voter turnout, or is gamifying elections a step too far?
