I am starting this petition to be the voice of countless pupils all around the world and be the direction we all need. Poetry. The most pointless subject we are ever taught in school. The fact is that there are no benefits to learning poetry but it is rammed down our throats for so long. In my school we had a vote and the overwhelming majority (over 90%) said that they wished for it to go and have great reasons for why.

It is disliked by many pupils because it is an outdated topic that hasn't evolved to fit today's society. There is a correlation between high depression and suicidal teenagers at the age that we study the poetry curriculum and I believe it to be no coincidence. We spend the majority of our time at school 'supposedly learning' stuff that is supposed to help and better us in life however there is no beneficial knowledge from studying  this curriculum. Everyone wakes up and dreads the days when they are studying another boring poem or have to do an hour plus G.C.S.E test on analysing the key themes on a poem. But why? 

It has forsaken us for too long everyone hates it but unlike other subjects that people dislike, some of those actually have meanings in further life. We wish that with this petition we can change the lives and mental healths of many young teens as depression is destroying many of our lives. 

We students here hope that we can better the lives of countless other students in the future.

Thank you for your support
