Cool Missing school for climate change.

Wow just think of all the money the government will rake in with all the 60 quid fines for missing school, not to mention all the hours in detention the kids will get.

Opinions on this, Good idea or not?

It doesn't make it clear whether she is not attending school, or striking at the school but not attending lessons. If it's the latter, I'm not sure her parents could be fined

Load of ***** is what I think of it.
However, I think it is important enough to justify missing one or two days of school do my best to raise awareness of this issue
Of course it will. China and India will be sh1tting themselves as a result

I'd read somewhere that it was the latter, they would be at school but would be absent from lessons for a certain period of time. Can't find the source of my information now though.

A lot of us had wondered, but is this the reason you didn't get the GCSE grades that you'd hoped for?
