The student strikers have invited everyone to join them on Friday 20th September.
Most educators are going to find it very difficult to walk out of work on the 20th September, and would risk their employment. Here are a few suggestions for still being involved.
Show this video to your leadership team, or at a union meeting or union mailing list. Many organisations are finding different ways to be involved on the day, for example it could just be a lunchtime strike or dropping the curriculum during a certain lesson in the day. Make sure you are letting parents, the Local Authority and local media know beforehand to raise the profile of the action you are taking.
Slip these 60 second clips into a tutor time activity so young people are aware of the power they have and what is happening on that date.
The planet’s on fire 🔥 Here’s how to fix it 🔧

Support students who are striking, find out who went previously or who is going this time and offer your support. Ensure the school is not sanctioning them and call them out in local media or parent groups if the school takes this type of regressive action.
