P-05-834 All Schools Should be Welsh Medium and Teach Welsh History

This petition was submitted by Ashley Davies, having collected 75 signatures.

Text of Petition

We the undersigned petition the Welsh Assembly and the Minster of Education for all schools in Wales to be welsh medium schools so as to preserve the language of our forefathers. We also ask that all schools in Wales teach Welsh history and of those that helped forge this land.


Additional Information

It is a travesty that the majority of people in Wales cannot speak Welsh. What is worse than this, our history is being lost. Only the schools in the North and West where Welsh is predominantly spoken is our history preserved, a history that is written in the language. To preserve these we must make sure that our children are taught them and that the language is used everyday.
