I saw it in one of today's papers that some school principals here in Ireland have discouraged pupils from taking part in climate change protests as part of the school climate change strike movement.

Some school principals have labelled the strikes infuriating, it seems that the schools that discouraged the kids care more about keeping their attendance figures up than more important issues.

Right up until I left school for good back in 2003 I frequently heard the teachers say that keeping the attendance figures up was more important than anything else.

Since it's rare that young people care about major issues like climate change, the school principals should be encouraging them to take part not discouraging them from taking part.
