Sinn Féin Ard Fheis 2007 : Health and Education

8 March 2007

The Health and Education section of this year's Ard Fheis was opened by Seán Crowe TD, Sinn Féin's 26 County spokesperson on education, whose address outlined the party policy that "education should be at the core of our society and equality must be at the core of our education. Although this state is one of the wealthiest in the world, our spending on education is one of the lowest, which is an absolute disgrace." Crowe condemned the Fianna Fáil/PD Government's failure to live up to its own commitments on class sizes and to reduce the teacher/pupil ratio to 1:15, as well as the current disgraceful situation where there are still many primary school children being taught in run-down prefabs and converted toilets.
