- United Kingdom
All school children in England have missed at least half an academic year of school. I believe that this will have a long term effect on their education and future prospects. It has widened the gap between the rich and poor with in our society. Reducing the future aspirations of our children, reducing their choices of further education and employment opportunities and careers.
BY making it compulsory for all children to repeat the academic year they missed will help put them back to where they need to be both academically, socially and emotionally.
We the undersigned, call on the Government of the United Kingdom to allow all school children to retake the school year that was taken away due to covid.
The Children should retake school year due to covid petition to 100,000 was written by Clare Austin and is in the category Education at GoPetition.
