Dear Minister Quinn,
The penal implications for new teacher entrants into Education and the decision not to pay allowances to new teachers with exceptional qualifications, including Primary Degrees, Masters' Degrees, Doctorates etc., is the first step in ensuring that the teaching profession will no longer attract the quality of expertise that has, until now, enhanced many schools throughout this country. How many students who achieve excellent Leaving Certificates, or who bring exceptional and versatile skills to teaching through participation in further education, will now be keen to become a teacher? This government talks about a Knowledge Economy yet your actions shows this to be an empty and hollow rhetoric.
