P-05-990 Open schools in September. Scrap blended learning


This petition was submitted by Martha Ogunremi having collected a total of 9,266 signatures.


Text of Petition:                     

Schools in other parts of the UK will be opening fully in September. The Welsh Government has no solid plans for this and is increasingly talking about blended learning for the longer term. Our children need to be back at school in September to prevent children in Wales falling behind other parts of the UK, allow parents to work and give children their right to a proper education. Kirsty Williams has given no thought to how BL will work if parents need to work. Parents will be made unemployable.
