The MP for Lichfield and Burntwood has been given a political grilling by students from Erasmus Darwin Academy.
The Conservative MP was given plenty of big issues to tackle, including Brexit and LGBT education in schools.
The school’s assistant principal David Shipman said the visit had been a chance to reinforce the role politics can play in the lives of pupils.
“The students from our academy council very much enjoyed the visit from our MP,” he said.
“Erasmus Darwin Academy encourages political interest and activism through the Youth Parliament system and is delighted to have current and previous Member of Youth Parliament for Staffordshire on roll.
“The students wasted no time in getting into some difficult topics, such as climate change, HS2, the NHS, Brexit and our school’s support for LGBT education, even in the face of protest.
“At the end, it was clear that we agreed on a number of issues and respectfully agreed to disagree on others.
“It was also great to hear Michael speak of his experience in the workings of an MP as a number of our students are considering pursuing political careers.”
Mr Fabricant said his visit had been an enjoyable one.
He said: “It was a real joy visiting the school and, I have to say, we agreed on most things.
“The school encourages debate and reasoning and it was very enjoyable meeting and talking with these students.
“They are very bright and I am sure that at least one will be an MP in the years to come.”
