Weight of school bags to debated

in News · 19-10-2017 13:15:00 · 0 Comments

Parliament is to debate a petition handed to MPs concerning the weight of school bags.

The petition is calling for school bags not to weight more than ten percent of children’s weight.
A recent study by consumer watchdog DECO found that more than half of children carried school bags which were above the maximum weight recommended by the World Health Organisation.
The petition is also calling for an increased use of digital technology at schools to reduce the number of books children need to carry on a daily basis.
