As members will be aware, the NCSE is forumlating policy advice for the Minister of Education and Skills on the future of special classes and special schools. The TUI has made a submission outlining our position and highlighting that provision of special schools and special classes should continue to exist until a viable, and fully resourced, alternative can be provided.
The NCSE is carrying out a survey on the issue currently. The closing date is January 24th 2020. The TUI would ask members to consider participating in this important survey. The NCSE survey can be found at https://ncse.ie/ncse-survey.
