POLL RESULT: Overwhelming majority of people believe students should be allowed to wear coats in cold classrooms
An overwhelming majority of people who voted this week in a poll run by the Offaly Express believe students should be allowed to wear coats in cold classrooms.
Of the large number of votes cast, 95% of people voted that students should be allowed to wear coats when classrooms are cold with just 5% disagreeing.
The poll was run after it emerged that students in the Sacred Heart School in Tullamore are not allowed to wear coats in classrooms despite the fact that windows are open to allow for ventilation as a Covid-19 mitigation measure.
