Green Party Deputy Leader Catherine Martin, who worked at St Tiernan’s Community School for 16 years prior to becoming a TD, said it is very frustrating and disheartening for the staff and students.
She said: “Teachers and pupils in schools like St Tiernan’s feel demoralised and rightfully draw the conclusion that at best they are not getting a fair chance, and at worst they are being neglected by a Government that appears not to care.
“The overarching priority for this or any other government should be to support our most disadvantaged schools and vulnerable students as education is key to striving to achieve equality of opportunity.
“With the roll-out of the new PE curriculum at Leaving Cert level, it is of immediate importance that schools like St Tiernan’s are fully equipped to run the course.”
