Most people think politics should replace religious studies in schools, poll shows

Nearly three-fifths of the British public believe that religious studies should be replaced by politics at secondary school, a survey suggests.

The poll showed that more than three-quarters of participants felt they had left school with little or no political knowledge.

In the survey of 2,000 people, commissioned by the political youth platform Shout Out UK, 92 per cent said they believed politics should be a compulsory subject in the national curriculum, with 57 per cent of respondents saying it should replace religious studies. 

According to the survey, many people felt they would have benefited from learning more about politics at school.

Some 78 per cent of participants felt they had left school with little or no political knowledge, with 84 per cent stating that most of what they knew had to be learned from sources outside education, such as family and the internet.

Only 36 cent of respondents between the ages of 18 and 25 said they understood how the voting system worked, with 58 per cent saying they had previously mixed up voting for a local MP with voting for the prime ministerial candidate in a general election.
