(THREAD): Seeing as the PM can't seem to figure out the educational mess he's created and just why going back to school is a controversy, I thought I'd make a thread telling him.
1. We know there is little risk to children. We really, really, really do. See what I'm doing?
Repeating a word over and over again, just like you!
2. We want to go back to school. You're fighting this argument by yourself. We do. Teachers, students, parents would send their children BUT the main problems are adult-related. Why is that so difficult to understand?
Adults, adults, adults- the adults that teach the children, that run the school, the adults they come to, the cleaners, the staff, the grandparents. The risk of transmitting and carrying COVID to adults, especially those vulnerable, matters. It ain't rocket science.

(THREAD) So, let's talk: mental health of Y13s, because this week, everybody remembers we exist!
1. We 'left' school in March. No/little contact with school after, no work, no purpose.
2. Exams cancelled. Nobody knew anything for 2 days.

3. 5 months of waiting for results. Blamed by Y12s for 'taking up uni places'. 5 months of listless boredom, time with our thoughts.
4. SQA Results come out- everyone panics.
5. Students can take their mock grades. We were told. At 22.30. On the 11th.
The mock grades are unfair for multiple reasons (who does better in mocks?), but also the fact people cheat, people see the question papers, leaving lots of students feeling stupid.
6. Results Day? Haha you think you can see teachers? Noooo, not quite...
