TEACHERS STRIKE ONCE AGAIN OVER JUNIOR CYCLE REFORM
Secondary school teachers across County Wexford and the rest of country are on strike today as the dispute over Junior Cycle reform continues.
It’s the second day of strike action over plans to make teachers assess 40 per cent of the work of their own students.
Talks between the ASTI, TUI and the Education Minister failed to end the dispute – while an eleventh hour plea from the Taoiseach was also unsuccessful.
Teachers say they may call a third day of strike unless agreement is reached.
