Striking Students Willing To Agree To 8 Sitting Days Next Year

Thousands of Australian students who went on strike today have reached a compromise agreement that would see them go to school 8 days in the first half of next year, the same number of sitting days in Parliament in the first half of 2019.

“We figured that if our leaders are going to turn up for a week and a bit this year, then we should probably match that,” a student spokesperson said.

Many students took the full day off today, reducing their sitting days to just 192.
