Sad but true, a chara.
Good to see that Norma is as competent as ever!
And her officials, especially the recently retired one who suggested this as an easy win. If you think the Dept. of Health is bad, I’d hate to see the shower in Marlborough Street run the health service.
Makes bleak reading. Not a surprising outcome, if you want to make such big changes, you need to come to the table with a credible plan. The Dept of Education coming along and saying trust us would ring alarm bells for me!
A very good point! This is soooo FFG. Be seen to advocate for an agreed change, but make sure it doesn’t happen if the middle-classes get restless. Plus of course, they don’t want to spend money on new schools. Hence the lack of special schools. ‘Inclusion’ only happens when they need it to.
That’s it, perception over performance is very FFG. I’d say there was just a fair amount of incompetence from the Dept of Ed as well on this, a rushed decision to engage with the public
Or a planned but unwritten decision to make sure it never happened!
This says it all. Nebulous plans , nothing concrete to be seen or discussed. Asking people to take a leap of faith with their children’s education and staff to change their working environment or conditions with no real information.
What did they think would happen.
