Rejected petition Introduce a complete ban on facemask wearing jn schools.

The government must draw up and pass legislation which completely bans the wearing of facemasks in all schools.

More details

As a result of "following the science", facemask wearing is no longer mandated in schools and colleges.

However, children are continuing to be forced to wear them in huge numbers of establishments, to the great detriment of their

. mental health
. physical health
. education

Rescinding the mandate is not sufficient,

- Head Teachers, as a "virtue signal", or under pressure from unions, are still forcing millions of children to wear masks.

This is institutionalised child abuse, and must stop.
