TUI says it won’t be safe to reopen schools for Leaving Cert students


The Teachers Union of Ireland says it will not be safe to reopen schools for leaving cert students next week.

Most schools are to remain closed for the rest of January, but leaving cert students will resume classes for three days a week from Monday.

Education for special needs children will also recommence that day, under the plans announced by the government yesterday.

TUI president Martin Marjoram says leaving cert students shouldn't return to school until January 18th at the earliest.
