Parents across the West Country are preparing to keep their children home from school this morning as part of unofficial strike action.
It's in protest over Government plans to change the education system including turning all schools into academies and taking them out of local authority control.
The parents involved are also arguing against too much testing in schools.
The action, promoted on social media, will see potentially thousands of children miss school with the threat of further strikes if the Government refuse to U-turn.
