Why I'm encouraging my daughter to wag school

I’m encouraging my nine-year-old daughter to wag school this coming Friday.

It’s not that I don’t value her education. I absolutely do. It’s just that on Friday 15 March I think she’s likely to learn more outside the classroom than in it.

She’ll be joining students in over 50 countries, and 40 separate locations around Australia, for the School Strike 4 Climate rally.

Students across Australia walked out of school in November to protest inaction on climate change.
