Budget 2018 Email Campaign
Primary education in Ireland is under-funded, with the largest classes in the Eurozone, a lack of supports for school leadership and disadvantaged children and there is an urgent need to plan teacher supply properly. In addition, unequal pay is sapping the good will of teachers in schools.
Primary teachers deliver a top quality education service to all pupils but meeting this requires extra resources. Children get one chance in primary education and investment in the sector has an immediate and long term impact. Budget 2017 was a lost opportunity to invest in primary education. Budget 2018 is the government’s chance to make that investment.
