Special deal for teachers in school closures
Friday, 11 December 2009
INTO has called on Education Minister Caitriona Ruane MLA to exempt teachers in school closures from new pensions regulations. The Department of Education wants school rationalisation. The Bain Report recommended school rationalisation. The most recent report on Area Based Planning also stresses the need for change to take place. It is obvious that the small number teachers caught up in school amalgamations and school closures should not be subject to the financial penalties arising from them not being able to access their pensions after the age of 55.
