The Minister for Education has stepped in to provide a free school bus to over 100 Ukrainian children living in Wexford after getting the green light from the government.
Many Irish people on social media have been complaining that they can’t even get a place in school for their child, never mind a school bus.
Others say that their Irish child has been denied a school bus ticket for the upcoming academic year.
Ukrainians living at the Hookless holiday village in Wexford were said to be absolutely outraged that more than 100 of their children aren’t able to avail of school bus services this week as schools resume.
They were availing of the service prior to the summer holidays but that delays and scheduling problems mean that the students, who are attending both primary and secondary schools, aren’t able to get their via the free bus service that was provided for them.
It’s believed bus service operators worked as hard as they could in the vicinity to resolve the problem for the Ukrainians as quickly as possible.
The matter reached the Department of Education who stepped in and provided a free bus service to the Ukrainians.
The hardworking Irish taxpayer is indirectly paying for the “free” bus service to the Ukrainians to go to school.
