This is the most encouraging thing I’ve seen today!
Recent reports show that at least six secondary schools in the North West of England face mass non-compliance from students.
Schoolchildren have started refusing to take lateral flow tests and wear masks.
One school in Lancashire reports only 67 schoolchildren out of 1,300 willing to comply.
That’s a non-compliance rate of 94.8%.
I guarantee that’s likely higher than every adult workforce you’d see in Western countries.

Education Secretary Nadhim Zahawi recently announced the re-introduction of COVID measures for classrooms.

ITV News stated:
Nadhim Zahawi has outlined a battery of measures to ensure schools stay open, as Covid cases continue to rise, including the reintroduction of face coverings in classrooms for students in year 7 and above and on-site tests for secondary school students ahead of their return to the classroom.
The Education Secretary said “the priority is to keep schools open”, and keep children in school in the classroom as much as possible, due to the mental health impacts.
Zahawi told the BBC the mask mandate in classrooms would be reassessed on January 26th.
However, many kids in the North West of England appeared to draw their line in the sand.
The NASUWT Teacher’s Union reported a revolt amongst students in several of their secondary schools.
Proper Manchester had the details:
However, according to the NASUWT Teacher’s Union, several secondary schools across the North West are experiencing vast numbers of pupils revolting against the new rules by refusing to wear masks or take lateral flow tests.
Speaking to BBC North West, Damien McNulty, a National Executive Member of the NASUWT, said in the last twenty-four-hours alone, six secondary schools in the North West have reported children ‘in huge numbers’ refusing to take lateral flows or wear masks in the classroom.
McNulty explained: “We’ve got one school in Lancashire where only sixty-seven children out of 1,300 are prepared to have a lateral flow test and wear masks.
“This is a public health emergency.”
A survey carried out by the the ASCL union suggests that this issue may stem down to parental consent, with more than half of secondary head teachers claiming to have faced difficulties getting parental approval for Covid tests, which are voluntary.
Geoff Barton, leader of the ASCL Union, told the BBC that parents might have heard ‘misinformation’ about testing, saying: “This is most likely to be simply a matter of oversight with some parents not returning forms.
“There may also be parents who are nervous about testing because they have seen or heard misinformation.”
I’ve stated countless times that mass non-compliance is THE way to leave COVID tyranny in the rearview mirror.
Sadly, most adults, especially men, have been too cowardly to take a stand for their children and protect them from tyrants running school systems.
If these schoolchildren can openly defy their abusers, so can their parents and other adults.
Share this far and wide to encourage kids and parents across America to stand up to these tyrants.
