EDUCATE TOGETHER proposes the following changes in order to address fittingly the challenges faced in the Irish education system:
Commenting on the need for investment in Irish education, EDUCATE TOGETHER CEO Dr Emer Nowlan said:
“EDUCATE TOGETHER’s proposals today represent the minimum required to properly address the challenges faced in the Irish education system, so that we can support every child and young person to reach their full potential and build a strong, cohesive and prosperous society.
“Ireland’s schools have remained chronically underfunded for far too long – the time is right for the Government to invest in re-balancing our education system to bring it into line with the needs of students today.”
“Education in Ireland must be properly resourced so that every child and young person can access an inclusive and quality education in their local area, no matter what their background or educational needs.”
