Kinder Mass Trespass ‘should be taught in schools’

A mass trespass in the Peak District was so significant that it should be taught in schools, it has been claimed.

The 1932 protest saw hundreds of ramblers walk on to private land on Kinder Scout, in Derbyshire, to assert their “right to roam”.

Following the protest, five men were arrested and imprisoned.

Perhaps schools should get the important 3 Rs taught correctly before considering these 2 Rs. There are already too many rights for kids and too much roaming by kids for my liking.
