This morning.

Further to a call by Fianna Fáil Senator Timmy Dooley for the Leaving Cert to be scrapped this year….

…on Today with Claire Byrne on RTÉ Radio One

The Association of Secondary Teachers in Ireland has again said that the Leaving Certificate exams should run as normal in June, despite a call for it to be called off this year.

…the unions President Anne Piggot said students are not in the classroom because of level of virus transmission and that students and teachers will be returning to the classroom as soon as possible…

….Ms Piggot said that it seems quite unusual that someone from the Minister for Education’s party should be calling for the cancellation of the state exams, particularly when the Minister has committed to them going ahead

ASTI reiterates Leaving Cert should go ahead (RTÉ)

    Put the teachers on holidays now and move the school term into the summer, plenty of time for the LC that way.

    ASTI and the rest won’t want to give up their summer and are quite happy to sacrifice their students futures instead

    Claire Byrne has a problem if she has to depend on a third rate muppet like Dooley for a headline.
