Closed petition PE2077: Update Curriculum for Excellence to remove Personal and Social Education (PSE) from secondary schools

Calling on the Scottish Parliament to urge the Scottish Government to remove PSE from the Curriculum for Excellence and stop it being taught in secondary schools.

Previous action taken

I have emailed several local and high-level Scottish politicians about the removal of PSE. This includes Scottish Government officials, my local MP, Hannah Bardell, my local MSP, Angela Constance, the First Minister, Humza Yousaf, and the Cabinet Secretary for Education and Skills.

Background information

In my view, PSE is a useless subject taking up the learning time of secondary school students from S1-S6.

We need to remove this subject as an early and first step to restoring the Scottish education system back to its former stature as the top education system in the UK.

Removing PSE will also help students as it will allow pupils to be more engaged and have more thorough classes, granting a higher standard of education.

I have met with my local MP, Hannah Bardell, and had an interesting and eye-opening debate about Scottish schooling.
