(1 Vote)

Tuesday - 20th July - Ruairi Quinn has refused to reclassify Down Syndrome as a low incidence disability for the allocation of resource hours, and referred back to the NCSE report.  So basically, we'll have to wait until the working group has finished its deliberations and a plan is put in place and executed. Can our children afford to wait that long - no sorry Minister!, we're moving to plan B.
