Stephen Donelan started this petition to Minister for education Joe McHugh and

On June 5th 2019 CSPE was examined at junior cert level for the final time. I believe that CSPE is an important subject that students need to be examined in so students will learn from it.

CSPE teaches important principles on stewardship, rights, responsibilities, democracy, development, law and human dignity. Students will not learn about these concepts if they are not tested on them in the junior cert.

This will inevitably mean in years to come adults will have no knowledge nor interest in our political system. This will mean a huge ignorance towards politics, to the detriment of our democracy. 

My intention is to petition the minister of education Joe McHugh to reinstate CSPE as a state examined subject.
