Alex Sutherland started this petition to School students (Year 11 and 12)

If you are in year 11 or 12 at an Australian school, currently about to sit your Preliminary exams or HSC, you will know how much English fricking sucks. Like Shakespeare, poetry, The HandMaid's Tale, aren't going to help us achieve the jobs we want, except for a very small niche. It makes kids stressful, depressed, and just overall unhappy. The school system worries more about results than student's well being. A majority of students now suffer from a wide variety of mental illnesses stemming from the stress and pressure of school. I guarantee, if English was an optional subject, a lot of this stress would be alleviated. Please, help out Australian youth and sign this petition. It may be too late to change for me, but think about the younger generations coming through.
