Class Size possible increase protest and Bus
(95) Friday, September 27, 2013

 

Dear Parent / Guardian,

 

INTO, Irish Primary Principals Network, and the National Parents Council have organised a major protest against the possible threat to increase class size in Budget 2014

 

  At

 

Department of Education and Skills,

Marlborough Street, Dublin 1. (Beside Pro-Cathedral)

Wednesday, 2 October, 4.30pm

Protect Primary Education

Protect class size

 

 

  • Children do not get a second chance at education. These years are crucial for our children. If we get it wrong for them now, it can NOT be fixed later.  
  • All families are urged to come to this protest, to make your voices heard in support of your children.
  • An increase of even ONE child to the pupil/teacher ratio, could see classes affected rise by up to thirteen or fourteen children.

 

Buses will be provided (Free) by the INTO for all families interested in travelling to the protest, leaving the car-park at 3.15pm and returning to same afterwards. The protest should last about one hour.

 

Please indicate below if you will come along, and write the number of bus seats your family will require in the space provided. Please return the form below to Ms. McNamara in the school

Class Size possible increase protest
(94) Friday, September 27, 2013

                                                                                                              

There is a possible massive threat to primary education in the upcoming budget, namely increasing class size. Ireland has the 2nd largest class sizes in the EU. Dublin Fingal has the highest class sizes in the country. To increase this would be fundamentally wrong. Children only get one chance at education. If you want to protect primary education from further possible ,cuts join the protest.

 

 

All the partners in primary education are organising and supporting a protest against increasing class size and any cuts to education in Budget 2014.

Outside the Department of Education and Skills, Marlborough Street, Dublin 1

Wednesday, 2nd October at 4.30pm.
