Knowing about our government (or any government at that) is important for many different reasons: Voting, knowledge, future improvements and career choices.

· Voting

We study governments so we can make an educated decision when it comes to voting. This means that you are not just going to make your voting decision on a speech or tv program that you see. You are going to be able to have a clear understanding of the different policies which are in place and you can compare one party to another, ensuring you make the right decision for you.

· Knowledge

Studying government gives you knowledge. You are in a position to know more about the government than ever before. If you do not study governments then you are not going to know all of the ins and outs of politics.

· Future

We can control the future of our country, including political movements and government decision making. Studying government is going to ensure that you can make a difference.

· Improvements

There is always going to be the option to make improvements within different governments. If a government does not have a clear idea on one of their policies, this can be changed and improved over time, and you can understand this when you study the subject.

· Career choices

Studying the government is going to open many doors for you and you can decide whether or not you want to go into a career in politics (to make a difference as much as you see fit).

There are many different reasons why we study politics, and it is mainly to have a clear understanding of how things operate and to ensure that improvements can be made in the future.
