It’s good to see @nadhimzahawi on #Marr with @SophieRaworth. I hope he will properly address ventilation as one way of reducing Covid disruption of our children’s education. #VentilateToEducate

The DfE has recently decided to buy 7,000 air filters for schools. This is a welcome step. But there are around 300,000 classrooms in Englands schools. As any school child will tell you, 7000 into 300,000 doesn’t go very far. #VentilateToEducate

It’s not unaffordable to prevent disruption to our children’s education. #VentilateToEducate #Marr
England could fit Covid air filters to all classrooms for half cost of royal yacht | Schools | The Guardian theguardian.com/education/20…

But a snap poll of NEU reps last week shows: 58% of teachers don't have regular access to a CO2 monitor Of those who do: 13% often have readings over 1500ppm 32% often have readings over 1200ppm This shows poor ventilation and makes disruption more likely. #VentilateToEducate

The government's inaction on school ventilation over the Christmas break has been disgraceful. But it isn't a new problem. For month after month Labour and others have called for action. And time and again the Tories have done too little, too late. A thread ... 🧵
