INTO criticises inadequate ICT infrastructure grant for primary schools
The INTO today described the ICT infrastructure grants for primary schools announced today as totally inadequate.
The union said the overall level of the grant was insufficient to meet the needs of schools in replacing obsolete ICT equipment. The INTO also said there was no justification for funding of €22.20 per mainstream pupil in primary schools compared with €31.90 per pupil at second level.
