Broaden the GCSE & A-Level English curriculum to include more BAME authors

Petition Details

The government should enrich the current GCSE & A-Level English Literature curriculum by requiring students read more books from BAME authors. There are currently only a handful of BAME authors in the GCSE and A-Level English Literature curriculum, preventing adequate reflection our current society.

Additional Information

The government and Department of Education have the authority to implement policies as such and I believe it would be in their best interest. This is as it will encourage students adopt wider global and cultural perspective and will enable the curriculum to reflect our current society.
