PARENTS will hand in an 11,000-signature petition against a controversial council campaign today.
East Sussex County Council launched its Get A Grip initiative last month in which it criticised parents for allowing children to be off school for what it said were minor illnesses.
The petition will be handed in to County Hall in Lewes.
There will also be a protest and speakers prior to the petition being handed over.
