Critics have attacked a decision to continue making secondary pupils wear masks in classrooms, branding it an “assault on children’s rights”.

Stand By Me Scotland has 1 151 members. They don’t have to be parents with bairns in school.
There are 792 000 pupils in Scotland’s schools.
How many parents or carers do they have?

Who are SBMS? ‘A private group’ with a website and these two Tory friends:
In their blog going back to August 2021, they have zero comments to their six posts:
A mass protest of 12, by the group on 3rd October at Holyrood:
Who supports face masks in the classroom?
- The 55 000 teachers in the EIS
- All of the Scottish Government advisers and senior health officers.
- The World Health Organisation
- The UK Conservative Government
Why is the Herald promoting this fake news from unreliable sources?
