Al-Ghanim: Democratic, human values must be taught to children since early years
National Assembly Speaker Marzouq Ali Al-Ghanim said on Monday that Democratic and human values should be taught to children since early years. Al-Ghanim said at the opening of the 3rd round of Student Parliament that "Today's session is a step in this direction." The top legislator added that the Student Parliament aims to give first-hand experience in parliamentary work and listen to students' points of view regarding the legislative activities and tasks.
 
Al-Ghanim highlighted the importance of the initiative on promoting democracy and respect of different points of view.
 
He added that the session was also a chance for the MPs to listen to the views of students on several issues.
 
Al-Ghanim announced that the students will discuss a number of bills on the development of the educational process and the outcome of their deliberations would be referred to the parliamentary Educational Affairs Committee.
 
"As I said before on numerous occasions, one of the most important structural problems that would weaken any society is the widening gap between the generations.
 
"I am talking here about the distance that turns slowly into a state of isolation and alienation between generations so that the equation becomes either that young people speak but their voice is not heard or that adults speak up but no one comprehends its implications and meaning; and when these gaps widen and the common language is lost, we turn into isolated islands," he stressed. He said "I always emphasize here that the idea is to create a forum through which we listen to this wide and important social segment of society and to their voice rather than having them hear us".
