Should we learn about the Windrush generation at school?

19th - 26th May 2023

Following the rise in extreme right-wing views and the young people caught up in them, this VoteTopic took a closer look at some examples of extreme viewpoints and how they are persuasive to young people. Voters also had the opportunity to look at some of the ‘push’ and ‘pull’ factors that lead to extremism and radicalisation.

Secondary, 16+ & College voters were asked: “Are extreme right-wing views persuasive to young people?”, while Primary 7-11 voters considered: “Can you recognise when someone has extreme views?” and Primary 5-7 voters discussed: “Can you respect views that are different to yours?”
