NotesNews: 15 May: Members of the Schools Action Union, many wearing Maoist badges, called for mass truancy. They hoped 10,000 children would assemble in Trafalgar Square. The SAU's demands included greater participation in the running of schools; end of the head teachers' power of veto; abolition of uniforms, canings and detentions; and re-introduction of free school milk.
