Minister for Education and Skills Ruari Quinn this week announced legislation in relation to school enrolments. As ITM members will know, this has been a policy area for ITM members through the education working group as well as the focus of a strategic legal case for the ITM independent Law Centre.
The ITM has begun lobbying our political allies in order that the proposed legislation has the maximum impact on enrolment for Traveller children. We will update our members on this in due course and will be calling on ITM members to be part of a strategic campaign to informa and influence as best as possible the legislative process.
As always, we will keep you informed via the weekly ezine, through phone calls and our Facebook page.
