The COVID-19 pandemic has raised financial, moral and ethical questions about spending on nuclear weapons versus spending on our health service. Peace Education Scotland have provided an information sheet for teachers and home educators which aims to summarise some of these issues, together with some practical considerations such as “social distancing” on a nuclear-armed submarine. It includes sample questions, curriculum links and references. Download it here: COVID-19 and Nuclear Weapons
