I want to compare the appointments under the NIHE Limerick Bill with the appointments made in that Act.More Button

The Minister, being a former lecturer, is well aware of the structure of university colleges and institutes and I do not have to tell him about them. This Bill does nothing to set down proper structu...More Button

The Minister went through the Bill section by section and I will do the same.More Button

I am going through each section—More Button

I am going through the Bill briefly for the purpose of bringing to the Minister's attention points I will be raising later by way of amendments. I am trying to help the Minister by making him aware of...More Button

The Minister is shirking his responsibilities.More Button

But no action.More Button

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Student Fees.

I wish the same would apply in universities. In view of the facilities available in teaching colleges, would the Minister consider extending the loan facilities and make some move in relation to acco...More Button

Would the Minister not agree that it would be a good initiative on his part to ask the universities to provide on campus residential accommodation for students who come from the country and find it ve...More Button

The Minister is avoiding the question.More Button

Can we expect, as a result of the committee's deliberations, a comprehensive system of educational broadcasting both on radio and television specifically geared towards the needs of school children an...More Button

Is there any date on which the committee will report to the Minister or will it be a long report which will be eventually pigeonholed?More Button

asked the Minister of Education if he will make a statement on the recent article in a magazine (details supplied) in which serious criticisms are levelled at the methods used to train secondary schoo...More Button

Can I take it that the Minister is satisfied with the present system in relation to the training of secondary school teachers? Is he satisfied with the present situation in respect of in-class traini...More Button

Would the Minister not agree that for a newly qualified teacher going into school for the first time there is need for some institutionalised guidance over a period of one, two or three years from tea...More Button
