Schools run mock elections to instill 'British values'

Since 2014, English schools have had a duty to promote British valuesThirteen-year-old British schoolboy Jeffrey is planning to vote Labour. Not in Thursday’s general election, but in a mock vote organised by his school as part of a drive to promote “British values”. “Although you are too young to vote legally in this election, in 2020 you will all be able to vote,” assistant principal Geoff Roberts told pupils at an election-themed assembly at a secondary school in Lewisham, southeast London. The children will vote after learning about politics in Britain, where Prime Minister David Cameron’s Conservatives and the centre-left Labour party are vying for power.
