Dáil Eireann Debate
288. Deputy Paul Connaughton asked the Minister for Education and Science the schools in which additional teachers are to be employed in County Galway; the location of the schools involved; when they will be appointed; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [7111/10]
Minister for Education and Science (Deputy Batt O’Keeffe): I assume the Deputy is referring to the posts recently allocated under the renewed Programme for Government which provides for 500 teaching posts to schools over the next three years over and above additional posts that will arise due to demographic increases. One hundred posts have been allocated to each sector, primary and post-primary in the current school year. At primary level posts have been allocated to schools that had increased enrolments in the current school year and which, as a result of last year’s pupil-teacher ratio change, lost out on a teaching post in this year by either one, two or three pupils. My Department has contacted the schools in question and in the interest of transparency the list of schools has also been published on my Department’s website. A list of the primary schools as sought by the Deputy is attached.
The list will be fully completed when the 30 September 2009 enrolment returns are received from the remaining schools that have not yet submitted them to my Department. At post primary level and with immediate effect, the current rule based arrangements for the allocation of learning support posts to schools have been revised and a revised staffing schedule has issued in recent days from my Department to the schools in question. The employment and appointment of teachers is a matter for each individual school board of management.
