Socialist are children,who went into the world, took a look around and said
"I cant handle it" and went home to daddy.daddy protect me,daddy feed
me,daddy cloth me. Socialist are scary little children. Who are in
responsible and cant stand on it own two feet, so daddy need to take care
of them. The socialist has to do what daddy tell them to
do.when,where,what,why, and how.

So they are gonna shove something up my nose?! I can’t imagine the staff doing it🤔

Lewis C February 23, 2021 - 4:26 AM

Wait what. If there tested twice a week surely there will be more positive cases because there just will if each secondary schools is doing maybe 1500 tests per week. So positive cases will rise and we will never leave lockdown and get back open in April/may??? !!

Devastating Farts February 23, 2021 - 4:26 AM

WTF, MANDATORY COVID-19 TESTED

Lewis C February 23, 2021 - 4:26 AM

No tests can be done on kids without full parental consent.

Yaur Yaur February 23, 2021 - 4:27 AM

Re-opening schools and other facilities won't be sustainable.

Israeldiegorivera2 Genius2 February 23, 2021 - 4:27 AM

No to vaccine passports,
sign the parliament petition. It is tyranny.

OH NO SCHOOLS OPENING NOOOOOO IM GONNA FAIL

bloatedasfk February 23, 2021 - 4:28 AM

Tests are not safe. Check out Dr Vernon Coleman, tests are run by SERCO.

B February 23, 2021 - 4:28 AM

Compulsory test? Madness. What the hell are we doing to these children. This is not going back to normality, so sad. The masks are here to stay, stunted has development already begun.

Green February 23, 2021 - 4:28 AM

I'm for and against this. As a secondary school student myself, I agree staff and pupils should get regular testing for extra precautions, however there is going to be a large amount of false positive rates if young individuals are getting tested several times a week.

Mahrufur Rahman February 23, 2021 - 4:28 AM

Ffs.

Mental health has already been ruined.

Why

stevexNYCperformance February 23, 2021 - 4:29 AM

It is impossible to support school to career reforms ,if those empliment
the changes are motivated by social engineering. It does not matter weather
the social engineer are nazi or kindergarten teachers, because the two are
the same.

Education of the young is used to condition them to what comes later. There
by eliminating the difference between propergander and education. The mind
is condition with vast amount of information disguise has facts and to
knowledge and to suspense has alteria mototives.
A child must learn to read cause anything else you teach them will come to
nothing in this modern world.how to write, how to calculate, do mathematics
and the then Analyze ,and think originally throught problems. With these
skills and foundational knowledge student or children will be able to enter
in occupation or career they choose. The real history of the world and of
they country. They will be prepared to maintain their freedom. To make sure
that it is never talking for them. To predetermined children occupational
skilled or career path is wrong.its dangerious and it gets ugly,very,very
ugle.

BBC you have no heart – Poor kids being muzzled

~PARTICIPATION IN THE COVID HOAX, IS JUST THAT~~
THERE NEVER WAS ANY APOCALYPSE FLU PANDEMIC…
THE HOAX IS WHAT A LIE LOOKS LIKE…

Shining Stars February 23, 2021 - 4:31 AM

This is such a fantastic news that things are getting back to normal. Parents and children are so excited

Jimmy Neuton February 23, 2021 - 4:32 AM

FAKE NEWS

sataniccookiemonster February 23, 2021 - 4:32 AM

~IF YOU'RE NOT SICK, THERE IS NO JUSTIFICATIKN TO GO GET "TESTED"…
SCREW THAT BULLSHIT~~

Leslie Witherspoon February 23, 2021 - 4:33 AM

Uhm, this feels like a bad plan. You can't get most teenagers to clean their rooms consistently, much less take a Covid test. Also nobody is going to be permanently emotionally stunted because they didn't go to in-person school for a year. Some of y'all probably have a great future in the theater.

paul hoskin February 23, 2021 - 4:33 AM

Summer holidays will never feel the same again

Gabriel Barudi February 23, 2021 - 4:33 AM

This is a bad Idea… But ok lets try

sunshineuk1965 February 23, 2021 - 4:33 AM

Of course, now all the elderly have the vaccine its normal to inform the public the elderly are not protected so we must start protecting the children

Ancient and Magical Landscapes February 23, 2021 - 4:34 AM

Permanent Lockdown and No More Public Gatherings/Schools/Universities ever again is the only route to Zero Covid.

tiger of light February 23, 2021 - 4:34 AM

It's too early

47mrdoug February 23, 2021 - 4:35 AM

Compulsory testing?? This is the first part of introducing compulsory testing to be allowed to go anywhere outside our homes!!

Abdullah Naveed February 23, 2021 - 4:35 AM
