ASTI: Schools losing teachers, dropping subjects, despite increased student numbers
The ASTI are reporting (in the above link) that important minority subjects - Accounting, Chemistry, Economics & Physics - are being dropped by second level schools as cuts in education impinge on the availability of subject choice to parents and students.
Additionally almost a third of Principals are teaching classes and 60% of Deputy Principals.
70% of schools have reduced services for career guidance.
What impact will this have on the future of education in Ireland?
