Michael Gove responds to young people
Secretary of State Michael Gove has responded to a letter sent to him on behalf of over 8 million young people. The Education Secretary's response comes after he received a letter from 15 youth organisations expressing grave concerns with his comments about youth policy.
In a supporting survey which complements the youth organisations' letter, the involved parties polled a selection of young people, 92 per cent of whom feel that the government does not do enough to show they care about young people and their futures. The survey also showed that 95 per cent believe that youth policy should be a key priority for national government.
To read the open letter please click on the link. The letter also invites the Secretary to visit a youth project in action.
This move from young people follows a joint letter from over 100 youth organisations to the Education Secretary expressing similar concerns. Co-ordinated by NCVYS, the letter can be read on our website.
