There was unanimous support at this monthâ€™s meeting of Clonmel Borough Council for the level of resource teachers and special needs assistants to be reviewed.
A motion was put forward by Workers and Unemployed Action Group (WUAG) member Cllr. Brian Oâ€™Donnell, who asked Clonmel Borough Council to write to the Minister for Education and Skills, RuairÃ Quinn, asking him to re-examine the numbers of resource and special needs teachers at primary and post- primary schools. Cllr. Oâ€™Donnell said the demand for such educational assistance had increased.
The motion was supported by all council members and will be sent to Minister Quinn for his consideration.
