Minister welcomes reform proposal
22 May 2015 23:11
The Association of Secondary Teachers, Ireland (ASTI) and the Teachers' Unions of Ireland (TUI) are to ballot their members on Junior Cycle reform proposals.
-
However, neither executive committee has yet decided on whether to recommend the proposal to members.
-
Minister for Education Jan O'Sullivan welcomed the breakthrough in negotiations following the publication of newly-agreed proposals.
-
Speaking on RTÉ's Six One News, Ms O'Sullivan denied she had compromised and that there would be a change of behaviour in the classroom.
-
"This is very much a reform and a breakthrough, because there will now be a written exam - which I have said has value - but there will be less dominance on the written exam, and we will also have the assessment which will be done in the classroom by classroom teachers," Ms O'Sulllivan said.
-
"And these will both be presented to the parents and the students at the end of the three year cycle."
