the guardian - Wed, 13/02/2019 - 16:10

Tameside head came up with idea after noticing increase in asthma among children

Primary school pupils in Greater Manchester have started patrolling the streets outside their schools as uniformed “junior” police officers, issuing fake parking tickets to parents parked on the pavement or sitting with their engines running.

The junior PCSOs (police community safety officers) were the brainchild of Steve Marsland, head of Russell Scott primary in Denton in Tameside, after he noticed a huge increase in children with asthma. Eighteen months ago he started to use an inhaler after having trouble breathing dangerously polluted air.

Academics back UK schools' climate change strikes

More than 200 sign letter to the Guardian saying pupils right to be angry at inaction

More than 200 academics have voiced their support for this week’s school climate strikes, in which thousands of young people are expected to take to the streets in towns and cities across the UK.

The academics, including almost 100 professors, say the “tragic and desperate facts” of the unfolding climate breakdown – and the lack of meaningful action by politicians – leave young people with little option but to take matters into their own hands.

'Politicians are messing with our future': student leader Amatey Doku on fighting Brexit

the guardian - Wed, 13/02/2019 - 09:00

The National Union of Students’ Amatey Doku on why the people’s vote campaign proves student activism isn’t dead

For a long time, young people were accused of being apathetic, and student activism was thought to be dead. That changed when student protests against the 2012 tuition fee rises took hold in campuses across the country. But according to Amatey Doku, vice-president for higher education at the National Union of Students, tuition fees were too inward-looking an issue to inspire a genuine student and youth-driven political movement. Instead, a unifying cause has finally arrived: the battle to stop Brexit.

“If we can secure a people’s vote and there’s a campaign, that’ll be the one time we can really get students behind it and with a common cause,” he says. “There is growing momentum.”
