Irish eduction struggles: Moving from Protest to Success
ireland / britain | education | opinion / analysis Sunday February 08, 2009 20:20 by Gregor Kerr - WSM - WS 107
The Education Cuts announced in October’s Budget have unleashed a wave of protest across the country. During the months of November and December approximately 120,000 people took to the streets of Dublin, Galway, Tullamore, Cork and Donegal to register their anger at the government’s attempts to make schoolchildren pay for the financial crisis. Cowen, Lenihan and O’Keefe have been left in no doubt about the level of popular opposition to these cutbacks. In addition thousands of 3rd level students have also taken to the streets and participated in marches, pickets and blockades to protest at the proposed re-introduction of fees.
What the government is now hoping of course is that we’ve all done our protesting and they can get on with implementing the cuts. While they’ve been forced to row back slightly on the issue of substitute cover for teachers, their concession has been minimal and begrudging, and there’s no doubt that as the state of the economy worsens they’ll actually be coming back for more in terms of cuts in essential public services.
