Primary teachers warn against Budget cuts to disadvantaged schools
THE TRADE UNION representing primary school teachers has warned education minister Ruairí Quinn not to try and cut the resources of disadvantaged schools in December’s Budget – saying the minister should learn from previous attempts.
Noel Ward of the Irish National Teachers’ Organisation (INTO) said Quinn should heed the warnings of the last Budget, when he was forced to abandon proposed cuts to the number of teachers at designated disadvantaged ‘DEIS’ schools.
