Abandon Prevent in Schools

Reason for signing

  • Early detection and prevention of terrorists and their sympathisers is vital in protecting people in Britain and beyond. Restricting the freedom of children to discuss and debate their views, which may be based on non-conventional views to the British, is not a reliable or productive method of achieving this. Teachers are their to teach facts and encourage understanding and critical thinking, not to police the thoughts of a very diverse group of young and impressionable individuals.
