Deferral of Junior Cycle English
URGENT MESSAGE TO INOTE MEMBERS/ENGLISH TEACHERS
The Executive of INOTE has decided to call for a deferral of Junior Cycle English. Please support us in our endeavours. The time has come for all of us to lobby Ministers, TDs, Inspectors, Department Officials, JCT Colleagues, Union Officials, anyone you feel can assist. Last Friday Dr. Travers recommended a suspension of Junior Cycle Science, while English Teachers were to continue with assessment next year. Unions meet again with Dr Travers on Friday, let us send a message collectively that we need an immediate deferral of English until we, the professionals, feel adequately prepared to teach our students, who deserve the best we can offer them
The attached document is a collated representation of your views, feel free to use as you wish. The Minister’s email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now is the time to speak, let’s speak loudly, individually, collectively but most importantly IMMEDIATELY.
