16th September 2022
INTO President John Driscoll has commended INTO members who have engaged with their public representatives in advance of Budget 2023, which will be announced on Tuesday, 27 September 2022.
The union has been in regular contact with politicians representing every Dáil constituency, including Senators and MEPs, to call for much-needed investment in primary education.
Our key priorities for Budget 2023 include:
- Lowering class sizes in primary and special schools by 2 pupils.
- Increasing school funding by 20%.
- Restoring Posts of Responsibility.
- Funding mental health supports for schools onsite.
Mr Driscoll thanked every member, parent and concerned citizen who has already used our advocacy tool to email their local TD. Every email matters and the President would like to call on any member yet to participate in the campaign to do so in the coming days.
