Fianna Fáil Spokesperson on Education and Skills Charlie McConalogue TD has called on the government to protect education services in Budget 2014.
The party launched its budget proposals this week, which protects funding for education services, mental health services and supports for people with disabilities.  Fianna Fáil’s plan prioritises special needs education, provides additional resource hours for children with Down Syndrome and reverses the cuts to small rural schools.
“We have put education at the heart of our Budget 2014 proposals.  We are sending the message to government loud and clear that it is possible meet budgetary targets next year without cutting supports for children with special needs, without attacking small schools and without introducing yet another hike in the student registration fee,” said Deputy McConalogue.
