As someone who lives near a school and has kids that goes to another school, far fewer arrive in a car than you think.I was thinking the same thing Watching it on the news me and mrs 73 thought how many are driven to school and all the other after school stuff even when they live down the road. Over all I think it's great they are doing it and all power to them. Some schools will not be happy though and left thinking bang go's the league table. Can't help think isolation is going to be a bit full in the next few days.
Well hopefully they are walking and cycling as much as possible and not asking parents to drive them somewhere. Be great if this next generation decide not to get around by car.I'm sure the school children that are protesting aren't driving themselves to school.
I thought the protest was excellent and was very disappointed by Moybot's response.
Oh for "§$%&/('s sakes.A Downing Street spokeswoman said that, while it was important for young people to engage with issues like climate change, the disruption to planned lesson time was damaging for pupils.
The National Association of Head Teachers said it did not condone children missing school to take part in the action and that "nothing is more important than a child's education".
