Labour spokesperson on Education, Aodhán Ó Ríordáin has said that the current controversy regarding examination marking is a crisis of the governments own making.

Senator Ó Ríordáin said:

“The failure to deal with the teacher supply issue is linked with pay inequality in staff rooms which the government has failed to address.

“Every week, I meet teachers at doors in Dublin Bay North who are fearful for the future of their profession.

“There is only one solution to the current empasse – pay teachers adequately to mark the exams.

“The stakes are far too high for the students of Ireland for this to be allowed to continue.”
