A protest is being organised by the Alliance Against Cuts in Education (ACE) on September 14th at 4pm outside the Dail, to protest the cuts in SNAs and Resource Teachers.

The government is cutting Special needs Assistants and resource teachers for the most needy children and young people. If allowed proceed, these cuts will set education back decades, effecting teaching for all children. Those with learning difficulties will be pushed out of mainstream schools or drop out of school early.

Parents, SNAs and teachers are coming together to stop this appalling attack. Children should not be victimised so that the private gambling debts of bankers, speculators and big business are paid. ACE (Alliance Against Cuts in education) is a recent coming together of groups of parents, SNAs, teachers and others concerned about the attack on the right to education for every child.

We will specifically campaign to reverse the cuts in special needs and resource education.

We demand:

  • No cap on Special needs Assistants – an SNA for every child who needs one. everyone has the right to education
  • Stop the cuts to resource teaching, visiting Traveller teachers and English Language support

When their kids return to school in September, two to three teachers will no longer be there and their school will be thousands of euro poorer. That means bigger classes with less attention for their child and more requests from school principals for parent donations to keep schools running.

Greens: No Fees – Cuts and Nama instead

Post election: They’re bringing in fees!

By Conor Payne, UL Socialist Youth

AFTER INITIALLY saying it would announce its plans in relation to college fees in April, the government has delayed the decision. The hated Fianna Fail and Green government want to minimise the amount of “bad news” in the run-up to the European and Local Elections. Young people will not be fooled by this approach. There is no doubt that fees are on the cards and that they will deny access to education for thousands of young people.
