Pupils deserve the best teachers
Open letter to Batt O'Keeffe:
A substitute supply panel has served the primary schools of Finglas for the past 17 years. An invaluable resource to our schools, it means qualified, vetted teachers are available to cover short-term absences, thus ensuring that the education of many of the most disadvantaged children in our community continues largely uninterrupted.
Your decision to abolish this service next September will make it very hard to provide substitute cover.
