Education: Secondary / Sun 20th Dec 2020 at 10:22am
HARLOW MP Robert Halfon has backed the plans for mass testing in schools but has slammed his government for announcing it on the eve of the Christmas holidays.
YH spoke to the chair of the education committee in the House of Commons as he continues to express concern over the amount of time students are losing.
With many teachers on the point of exhaustion, there are concerns over how it is going to be organised in two weeks time (and who is going to pay for it?)
We also covered a number of other issues relating to Covid-19 and Harlow in an interview that took place in Saturday morning before Tier 4 details announced.
