Sale Grammar School's Digital Surgery (Nicky Morgan MP)Posted on: January 31st 2018
Sale Grammar’s Year 12 Politics students today got the chance to talk to the former Education Secretary and current House of Commons Treasury Select Committee Chair, Nicky Morgan. Taking part in the school’s second Digital Surgery, students were able to ask the MP a variety of questions, ranging from issues about the role of women in politics, to whether or not the right to vote should be extended to 16 and 17 year olds. The students have been working on this venture in conjunction with the Politics Project, an independent education charity that specialises in democratic education. The 'Digital Surgeries' programme has been launched to combat negative stereotypes surrounding politics and enable young people and politicians to have meaningful conversations about issues that matter. Year 10 students have also participated in the project, having earlier asked probing questions to the Leader of Trafford Council, Sean Anstee.
