The Association of Secondary Teachers in Ireland had instructed its members not to co-operate with the government in plans to reopen schools after it was initially announced that Leaving Cert students would return to in school learning for three days a week.
However, ASTI told teachers not to return to in-school teaching while the Irish National Teachers’ Organisation (INTO) said it is “dissatisfied with the information presented and serious questions remain” following its meeting with government officials and they got their way by the looks of things.
Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly had tweeted:
“People are understandably asking about the public health advice on limited reopening of schools. Short version of advice is the schools are safe while reopening in full is not advisable given large movement to & from schools.”
Now the government have done a U-Turn with Leaving Cert students told that they too will be studying remotely.
