Schools to feel the pinch of education funding cuts

The penny pinching by the Government in last week’s budget will have a detrimental effect on the education of young people, according to two Mayo secondary school principals. Ioseph McGowen, principal of Davitt College, Castlebar told the Mayo Advertiser earlier this week: “It will seriously affect the way we run the school and it will make it nearly impossible to keep it running to the high standards we have set for ourselves.” With bigger class sizes being a reality for schools, Mr McGowen is worried that it will affect the quality of teaching that the students will get. “Having bigger class sizes is no good for either the students or the teachers, we’re looking at loosing between one and two teachers here which will lead to less subject choices for both the Leaving and Junior Certificates.”
