Further Education Protest‏

Please see below:
I wish to advise you there will be a protest outside Dail Eireann against the change in the pupil-teacher ratio in the Further Education sector at 5.30 on Thursday, 25th April.
The purpose of the protest is to defend the Further Education sector against a change which carries with it the very real possibility that many courses would cease to be offered. This would deny a great number of students access to education, thereby limiting their potential to engage productively in the workforce or to progress to higher education.
A large proportion of the students in Further Education colleges come from backgrounds which would not traditionally be associated with a high participation rate in education; the change in the pupil-teacher ratio will therefore only serve to deepen educational inequality.
Your support would be greatly appreciated.
Yours, Donal Griffin
