The National Union of Schoolchildren (NUS) has called a country-wide strike, causing thousands of schools across the UK to close. A lack of chaos is predicted as children and teachers stay at home.
The NUS has promised to continue the strike until their demands are met. These include a 10% increase in dinner money, five minutes extra play-time, and the option to skip PE. Union boss Henry, 7, said "We don't need no education."
He continued, "Well, obviously we do, but only on our terms. What kind of a world are we living in when teachers lecture pupils on how to behave?"
Teachers are said to be happy about the strike, and are planning to enjoy the day off school. One teacher said, "I can't wait, I'll get to sit in and watch 'Loose Women'. And it's nearly summer holidays too. Yippee!"
