National Education Union advises how to organise school kids strike

The National Education Union (the largest education union in the UK) has advised teachers with a list of disruptive ideas to help children skip school and protest against climate change. They include dropping the curriculum, setting off fire alarms, sending pupils to protests…  Gaia Flawkes reports

Many members have already had meetings and met with school leadership teams to agree action on [Friday]. These are lots of things that are already planned to coincide with the action. For instance, in Doncaster the council have asked schools to set off alarms to illustrate the climate emergency. Here are some ideas that you can use to organise action in your school:

Get the whole school to take action for 30 minutes by demonstrating in the playground.

Drop the curriculum for the day or part of it and teach environmental and ecological issues.
