Petition Ban the use of face masks in schools
Face coverings should be banned in schools as they can inhibit communication which could restrict learning and could create social stigma.
I don't believe there is enough research about the effect that face masks can have on children in a school, so they should be banned until there is. The 'precautionary principle' should be applied.
