6 Billion in adjustments. I can´t see how education can escape as social welfare, health and education are the biggest spenders. Having said that, I hope that the pain for the most vulnerable is kept to the absolute minimum.

I emailed the relevant Government Ministers but not too hopeful. The more people who talk about Education the better.

I have heard that they are cutting SNAs. When are the cut backs supposedly going to take effect, does anybody have any idea?

If we don´t want our kids in overcrowded classes, losing vital supports in schools for all, including special needs and disadvantaged, then we should contact our TDs now. Green Party TDs in particular.

I have only seen this thread now and think that as parents, we all need to make our voices heard and to voice our anxiety about cuts to the Education budget.

This is one of the threads I was referring to earlier, as an important and relevant thread on which to post. We all need to make our voices heard and protect the education budget for our children and the future recovery prospects of our country.
