I think if kids are really passionate about something they should express it in moderation. Also to just keep them safe from groups and social media

 @9HBV35Cfrom Ontario answered…6mos6MO

I believe that children should get involve when they’re old enough to understand what is going on. This will help them get a clearer idea of what the problems are.

 @9HBC5FTfrom Alberta answered…6mos6MO

I believe that depending on their age they should be allowed. I think this because everyone’s voice matters. They should be able to speak their truth, but at a young age it’s harder for you to be taken seriously.

It's important for children to know that their voice matters, but for their own safety it would be best to avoid public speaking and protests.

 @9HCM99RPeople’sfrom Ontario answered…6mos6MO

Yes, because it makes them feel like they are part of social issues that affect them - even if they are not of voting age - because it does affect them.

 @9H9VCL5from Ontario answered…6mos6MO

Social Activism is great, but that should be up to the kid to decide and not the school

Social activism is good, but schools must avoid instilling their own beliefs.

 @9H9PJYCfrom Ontario answered…6mos6MO

No, kids should be acting like children, not just thrown into real world problems.

 @9HBJZMCfrom Ontario answered…6mos6MO

Yes, we need to teach the children of the future all of the things we think is important if we are to have promising future.

 @9HB3VYDfrom Ontario answered…6mos6MO

Student should be encouraged to learn about social activism and active issues, but wait until they are at the right age to make their own choices and have opinions on social issues.

 @9HCPGGRfrom Ontario answered…6mos6MO

Yes for sure. Having students participate in social activism would be really good for their mental and physical health, and that's how you can meet new and more people and become friends with them.

 @9HCNZ2Vfrom Ontario answered…6mos6MO

Absolutely not, children should be focusing on their current studies, not being introduced to the world problems.

 @9HB9MBDfrom Nova Scotia answered…6mos6MO

Yes, they should be encouraged to enhance their personal growth. As they learn about ongoing issues and also develop critical thinking skills.

 @9H66NKKfrom Alberta answered…6mos6MO

To an extent. Kids these days are dense and don't understand how the world around them really works.

 @9H9QP5Vfrom Ontario answered…6mos6MO

Yes but it depends how young they are I would say age 8 plus is best for reasonable decision making. I agree people from a young age should be educated and have the right to share their own views and opinions to grow.

 @9H6HL22New Democraticfrom Ontario answered…6mos6MO

 @9H9TJ8Kfrom Ontario answered…6mos6MO

No because they do not have a full grasp on what they are doing and could possibly get harmed or hurt doing this.

 @9HBCVCKfrom Ontario answered…6mos6MO

 @9HCKHRXfrom Ontario answered…6mos6MO

I believe that students and children should be told that they are able to participate, but not encouraged. Young peoples opinions can be easily influenced by other people, and so I wouldn't want them to participate in something because someone else told them that it would be a good idea.

 @9HB4547People’sfrom Ontario answered…6mos6MO

No, because a childs life should not be made political at such a young age because having the expirienceof an actual childhood is different than having a social political life.

 @9HCCVDZfrom Ontario answered…6mos6MO

Yes because they bring new ideas and they know the needs of the Yung people I think is a good aidea they can participate

 @9HBH2Y6from Ontario answered…6mos6MO

Yes, I think they should because it's important to know how the world is and who you are going to meet.

 @9HCMD29from Saskatchewan answered…6mos6MO

No, children should be free to choose if they want to participate in activism without influence

no students in highschool don’t know everything they should know to be able to participate in social activism and most parents try to force their beliefs on their children

 @9HBRVSWfrom Ontario answered…6mos6MO

NO, They should only focus on studies and should not be forced or something to do anything.

 @9HBBY8Pfrom Ontario answered…6mos6MO

I think it is important for students to get educated on politics from a non biased stand point but they should not be involved in political activism because we don’t have all the information.

 @9HBV6FXLiberalfrom Ontario answered…6mos6MO

 @9HBLGW7Greenfrom Ontario answered…6mos6MO

students from a young age, specifically elementary students should not be concerned about politics in the first place. They should participate when they are older and have a better understanding of the world around them.

 @9H65F9Lfrom Ontario answered…6mos6MO

Yes, because the longer you stay in a system without challenging it the more complacent you become

 @9HBBRVPNew Democraticfrom Ontario answered…6mos6MO

Yeah they should, this is because this will help them develop social skills at a young age

 @9HB4KG3from Manitoba answered…6mos6MO

 @9HCMTBXfrom Newfoundland answered…6mos6MO

Yes, it is important to advocate for what you believe to be right or just

 @9HCGG3TGreenfrom Ontario answered…6mos6MO

Not to spoil a childhood with todays issues but to enforce a mental fortititude in the youth to resist and fight for what they believe.

 @9H9T9D2from Ontario answered…6mos6MO
