Deputy McConalogue says government is misleading on school posts

Disadvantaged schools in Co Donegal are still facing major cuts to resources, according to Donegal North-East Deputy, Charlie McConalogue.

Minister for Education Ruairí Quinn said his department was still seeking cuts in teaching posts in Deis schools.

Addressing the Oireachtas Education Committee yesterday, the Minister said that while the current review of Budget changes would address some concerns, there would still be a reduction in resources.

Deputy Charlie McConalogue has accused the Government of “spinning a yarn” that the decision to remove 428 posts from Deis schools would be reversed
