I don't tend to discuss the war with my pupils (aged 11-18). I do wear a badge and many pupils saw teachers leave school at lunchtime to march to the town centre. It is worth noting that all the little demos and vigils in town centres also have an effect, not just the big demos. Several people have commented that they've never seen a protest march here in our town in Cornwall. On the day war broke out, a 14 year old girl told me that there was no hope of stopping the war and that two of her uncles were in Kuwait. I started to point out that being anti-war was not the same as being anti-troops. She stopped me and told me not to worry, both her uncles are against this war.
