Was hoping for some feedback really.
Live in Dublin South West and as such have a variety of schools to choose from( at second level)
Have been involved in all the parents associations....(4 kids) and therefore 4 different schools.Junior primary,senior primary and two different secondary schools. Am very active in the local community generally.
The secondary schools have been on waiting lists for a new build for a long number of years now!!
AND yet I see money being spent on schools with "links" to the GAA....primary schools being fast tracked because they fall under the Educate together or Gael Scoil....and yet one secondary school has been "parked" yet again on the list for a new build(2nd time around!!)....!!
This all girls secondary school has a large number of different religions which attend.It is a catholic school but empowers all students to achieve and has got really positive feedback from the dept and from parents!!
It is more through hope than wood that the windows are still in place!!...The science lab wouldn't be found in any other school in this area and the Home Ec room is like something in your Great Grannys house!!!!!!
Is there an agenda involved?
Ensure more choice...though we have not been part of the "parental choice survey" in the Dept of Ed and Science??
Is there an agenda at play here??
Positive discrimination some would say!....or should be those who are their longest deserve their reward??
Any examples from your area??
