Irish Examiner 14 Oct 2015 An extra 2 200 teachers will take up the bulk of an extra 144m available in 2016 to Education Minister Jan O Sullivan They will reduce primary and second level pupil teacher ratios but mainly ensure schools keep up with growth in numbers of pupils and in those with special needs But while welcomed by schools and teacher groups all said these must be the first steps in reversing many years of education cuts Almost two thirds of the 2 260 extra teachers around 1 400 just like this year are to meet enrolment increases at primary and second levels The INTO which set lower primary class sizes as its main Budget 2016 target welcomed the move but expects more similar initiatives from Ms O Sullivan or her successor next year This is the first move to tackle

first step Irish Herald 14 Oct 2015 An increase in the number of teachers and smaller class sizes brought about by the Budget has been welcomed as the first move to tackle overcrowding in a decade The
