Call for the abolition of the new circular on staffing and panel arrangements in Irish primary schools

649 Signatures Goal: 1,000

If this new circular is enforced, many teachers who are employed in temporary positions will lose their jobs. Their jobs will be given to those on the panel. Those without panel rights will be left jobless, despite their hard work and dedication to their schools. As there will be so many people on the panel this year, it is likely that some will be left without a job, even though they have given many years of service and loyalty their schools.


The following is a list of reasons why there will be so many people on the panel this year (at least 1,100 on the main panel and 600 on the supplementary panel)

Government decisions to:
1. Cut RTTs (Resource Teachers for Travellers)
2. Phase out EALTs (English as an Additional Language Teachers)
3. Change staffing schedule for Gaelscoileanna
4. Renege on promises for new jobs
5. Keep the PTR (pupil teacher ratio) high
6. Cut Rural Co-ordinators

So the Government will be paying more unemployment benefit than employing teachers who can contribute to the country by paying taxes!
