Defend our school children – oppose Irish Government cuts to SNAs and other frontline education services
Instead of delivering the change they promised the Fine Gael/Labour Government continues to implement Fianna Fáil’s ‘slash and burn’ policies across the education sector. This means more cuts to essential frontline services with Special Needs Assistants (SNAs) and specialist Language Teachers being particularly hard hit and bigger class sizes across the board. The Labour Minister is trying to blame Fianna Fáil for these bad decisions. But the choice is his. He is in a position to honour Labour’s pre-election commitments and protect special education services and reduce class sizes. There are alternatives to going after some of the most vulnerable sections of society. The fact is that SNAs play a critical role in ensuring some of our most vulnerable children receive a decent education. Please show your opposition to the cuts that are being imposed on SNAs and other frontline education services by signing this online petition.
