On RTE this morning, without a smirk he (mcGowan?) suggested that private schools should still use state employed teachers and refund the department. What is he smoking? surely the now completely private schools should get their teachers from where ever they want or employ them on 1 or 2 year short term contracts. It would seem illogical that private schools would be forced to use essentially civil servants. Aircoach doesnt have to use CIE workers.
Why does he think he can have his cake and eat it?
NOTE: Please dont rehash the general arguments over the funding of private schools, its been done to death and it will be boring. I am raising a specific issue. But feel free to discuss how private schools would operate in such an environment
