Democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, respect and tolerance… these are the British values. The values that we all know and use every day, to make not just others feel better but ourselves as well. The British values are one of the many factors that keep us together as a society and aims to make us better and nicer to each other. Everyone can have a different interpretations and beliefs for British values. The one thing that they all have in common is that these values help us learn everyday one way or another.
The British values are there to keep us all safe and happy as much as possible but also to help us learn how to value not just the others but ourselves, and that is only one of the reasons why everyone should be educated on what each value mean and how to be able to promote them in their own activities. We live in a society where many people are stuck on their phone screens swiping through social media until they forget what real life is. British values are something that helps us all get back into reality, back to the world where we live, and we know.
Not everyone agrees on what 'British Values' should represent, or if they want to promote these. Like all countries and cultures, some elements of Britain's history were not fair or respectful to all and 'British Values' can therefore be a controversial idea. Britain is now a multicultural society with many different races and ethnicities defining 'British Values' in their own unique way. Teaching about 'British Values' should therefore take this into account at all times and recognise that some people may not agree with a traditional, principally white, male, interpretation of what these values should be.
