Do not revoke our study leave

This petition made change with 1,003 supporters!

 The implementation of reduced study leave time will put undue pressure on those sitting exams. Since starting school, my peers and i have been considered 'guinea pigs' for the new Curriculum for Excellence, while the teachers, the school, and the SQA worked out how the new system would function. Now, the local authority are taking away the majority of our study leave and are ultimately setting us up to fail. Throughout school, we have been taught to become independent learners, however, by forcing us to attend school during the exam period will waste valuable time that could be spent studying independently. Study leave is beneficial and vital for every student, in particular students studying Highers, as it allows us to be in control of our revision and become focussed in preparation for exams. Study leave has been successfully implemented for many years, so why change it now?
