HUNDREDS OF DONEGAL SECONDARY SCHOOL TEACHERS ON STRIKE AGAIN

first_imgOver eight hundred Donegal secondary school teachers have opted to strike again as the row over the Junior Cert reform rumbles on.It’s the second time since December that teachers in Donegal have went on strike as part of a nationwide stance amongst post-primary teachers.The unions are concerned with the changes being proposed by the government to the Junior Cert which would see them assess 40% of the work of their own students. Negotiations between ASTI, TUI and the Education Minister last week failed to produce an agreement on the issue which prompted the latest strike.The strike has forced over three hundred and fifty thousand students to stay at home.It’s hoped that an agreement can be reached between all parties following today’s latest strike action.HUNDREDS OF DONEGAL SECONDARY SCHOOL TEACHERS ON STRIKE AGAIN was last modified: January 22nd, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:ASTIEducation MinisternewsSecondary SchoolsteachersTUIUnionslast_img
