Dumfries and Galloway Council Plans to AXE Music Tuition in schools.
Dumfries and Galloway Council Plan to AXE Music Tuition in schools , leaving kids who's families cannot afford private tuition without. The impact on the wider community would mean that bands in the area would eventually fold with no new players coming. Music curriculum in schools would only be open to children who learn private tuition meaning that our music programme in Dumfries and Galloway would be a thing of the past with less being able to access it. Our Community has achieved so much musically that it would be an absolute shame to see this all disappear. Every child should have the same opportunity regardless of financial .... Although Music isn't on everyone agenda... it is something that promotes Good Mental health and well being. It improves children's abilities to communicate , socialise and improves other curriculum in schools such as numerical and English studies. Please help us stop this, we would be the only region in Scotland to do this, Midlothian stopped this from happening .... we can too
Petition to House of Commons, Education Secretary Gavin Williamson, James Frith MP And GMP, House of Commons and Education Secretary Gavin Williamson
Investigate bullying at Broadoak High School (Hazel Wood High School)& GMP investigation.
We the undersigned community of Bury, Lancashire and all communities across the UK demand the House of Commons, Education Secretary Gavin Williamson, James Frith MP and the Local Education Authority of Bury, Lancashire including First Deputy Leader of the Council Cabinet Member for Children, Schools and Families Councillor Tamoor Tariq, to investigate Broad Oak High School (Hazel Wood High School) for potential negligence and a potential breach of its duty of care towards its pupils in light of accusations of failure to address incidents of bullying. In addition, we also demand Greater Manchester Police to conduct a full transparent investigation into the circumstances leading upto and surrounding this tragedy. This petition comes in light of the tragic death of 12 year old Shukri Yahya Abdi, a Somali refugee who came to the UK alongside her mother and siblings for a better quality of life and safety and instead was a victim of bullying at the above named school, where inaction and potential failures to protect this student by staff may have inadvertently led to her death last week. Greater Manchester Police MUST investigate this incident with full transparency and we advise everyone across the UK to sign this petition as it affects every parent of every child. We hand over responsibility of our children 7 hours a day, 5 days a week the moment we leave them at the school gates. We therefore should expect a level of duty of care to be observed by those whose care they are under.

Petition against sex education in school
This is DISGUSTING and we as Parents need to stop this from happening. According to the department, the new Life Orientation curriculum would be targeted at grade 4 to 12 pupils and would cover a variety of subjects ranging from healthy lifestyles to sex The Basic Education Department said that Life Orientation was an important subject and must be enhanced at South Africa's schools. The department has distanced itself from reports that it's new Life Orientation curriculum would teach grade 4 pupils about masturbation. On Monday, the department reacted to a Sunday Times article which reported that children as young as 9-years-old would learn how to self stimulate for sexual pleasure when the new textbooks are rolled out next year. It has caused a stir, with some parents questioning why their children would be exposed to such topics at school. According to the department, the new curriculum would be targeted at grade 4 to 12 pupils and would cover a variety of subjects ranging from healthy life styles to sex education. It said that grade 4 pupils would be taught in the most appropriate and sensitive way about how babies are conceived, amongst other topics. Spokesperson Elijah Mhlanga: "It needs to be improved, it needs to be enhanced because we have to check if it is giving us what we're expecting if it was yielding the required result. We will monitor the outcomes on an ongoing basis."

2019 matric maths rewrite
The maths paper 1 and 2 of 2019 was one of the most difficult papers set . It seems almost impossible for a student to have done well in it . The education department needs to reset the maths papers to give students an opportunity to rewrite in order to do better or they need to push up the marks. share this with as many people as you can !
Petition to South African Department of Education
Sex education to be taught to grade 4 learners from 2020
Please sign and help our children stay children for as long as possible. Personally this is disgusting and should NOT be taught in schools!! Who knows a child better than a parent? ONLY a parent will know when a child is ready to be taught about the proverbial birds and bees. My proposal is that as many parents sign the petition stating that their children will not be taking part in these lessons at schools. I am a mother and a grandmother and most definitely do not agree with this at all. It will promoting promiscuity and teenage pregnancies will soar to an all time high!! Taken from a TimesLive article dated 12 May 2019: Grade 4s to learn about masturbation in new life orientation curriculum BY PREGA GOVENDER The life orientation curriculum is hooking up with the 21st century. From next year, textbooks for pupils in grades 4 to 12 will reflect a “cutting edge” curriculum that treats masturbation, sexual consent, gender nonconformity and single-parent families as mainstream. Sex therapist Dr Marlene Wasserman (Dr Eve), one of 80 experts who have overhauled the curriculum, said: “Masturbation is normalised and it is threaded through [the curriculum] from grade 4. It begins with self-pride, self-image, body diversity, genital differences, genital changes and touching oneself for pleasure.” While grade 4 pupils would learn about consent in friendships, older pupils would learn about sexual consent. “The curriculum was geared for the 2020 South African learner: who is he, she, they? A fluid, gender nonconforming child raised in a family of a mom and an absent dad,” Wasserman said. Hayley Walker, chair of Protective Behaviours Southern Africa, said the textbooks were long overdue because “too much many life skills have been left to chance”.

Petition to Students, Teachers, Parents
Get student fees refunded from strike!
The teacher strike starting 25th of November 2019 reduces our education. Not only this, but the university fees paid to attend university in order to be educated are not going towards our education for the period of time in which the strike takes place. The right to strike should be respected in order to gain 'rights' for teachers and staff which they, and many others, believe are rightly due. However, students should not be the ones to suffer for this! After university, most students are in large amounts of debt due to their dedication to be educated to a higher level. This is a sacrifice university students are willing to make. Despite this, reducing the time students are educated due to strike(s) makes a mockery of the large funds students pay, especially when there is no fee reduction for the time lost. During this time, the teachers/lecturers, etc. do not get paid. This results in the university maintaining funds paid by students which are not going to these teachers for educational teaching, in which only the university benefits. This must be corrected! This petition is for university students to be refunded on a percentage of their fees paid, based on the amount of time taken for a teacher strike.
