Unions criticise English schools ‘more normal year’ campaign as naive
The Guardian says a new government campaign urging students in England to have twice-weekly Covid tests for “a more normal year” at school and college has been labelled as naive by school union leaders.
The campaign includes an Olympic gold medallist, the 18-year-old swimmer Matt Richards, telling students that regular testing allowed him to compete at Tokyo and will allow them to “get back to the things you love, like competitive sports and school matches”.
The campaign on social and digital media and radio comes as schools and colleges in England reopen for the autumn term.
