Please request the education secretary to keep schools closed until The coronavirus is under control and it’s safe for schools to open. I’m scared the government is going to open the schools too early!
I’ve started a campaign to get the education secretary to listen to concerned parents, everyone’s help would be appreciated.
Please sign the petition on chng.it/Mb4P5qBLTJ
The petition is on change.org

So you want the schools closed until a vaccine is created and mass distributed? So until next year some time if we’re being optimistic.

What do you mean by 100% under control?

No active virus will every be 100% under control.

err no. It will not be completely under control unless a. there is a vaccine and b. it has been manufactured in the billions and most of us have had it. Sometime next year being optimistic.

Its a big ask. Until schools reopen, I can’t work. So I’m on the breadline with no hope of coming off it. Plus, if the pandemic is like HIV, the other pandemic it has been compared to, we might as well knock all the schools down. Then they’d have to stop paying the teachers and they could remember that people do have to work to earn money.

Why? Please explain? Are you concerned about the children? The teaching staff? Or spread to other community members?
