  124.  Mr. Bradford  Information on Paul Bradford  Zoom on Paul Bradford   asked the Minister for Education and Science  Information on Micheál Martin  Zoom on Micheál Martin   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): Information on Micheál Martin  Zoom on Micheál 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.
