How should schools respond to strikes for climate change?Date: 04.06.2019
The school strikes for climate movement seems to be growing. There were predictions that the strikes scheduled for 24 May were expected to be the best attended, globally, to date. Schoolzone wondered how teachers – and schools – were responding to the movement: how supportive they were and what teachers thought their schools should do about the climate change issue.
On the same day, the Labour Party revealed an intention to increase the coverage of climate change in the curriculum, should they come to power. Again, we thought it would be worth finding out via a quick poll whether teachers were supportive of this idea.
We asked our teachers over the three days of the end of May bank holiday for some response.
