Dáil Éireann Debate
124. Mr. Bradford asked the Minister for Education and Science the progress, if any, made in relation to fulfilling his commitment to grant a second teacher at the majority of one teacher schools; and if a second teacher will be appointed to Clondulane national school, Fermoy, County Cork, in September 1998. [15467/98]
Minister for Education and Science (Mr. Martin): An Action Programme for the Millennium contains a commitment to give primary education a clear priority in allocating resources. In this context, the programme specifically states that one teacher schools with ten or more pupils will receive a second teacher.
In the context of finalising staffing arrangements for primary schools for the 1998-9 school year, I am examining a range of options with a view to identifying the most appropriate way to fulfil the Government's commitments to one teacher schools as outlined in the programme.
