March 1, 2013
Sinn Féin Education Spokesperson Chris Hazzard has welcomed the injection of £92m into the education system over the next two years.
Mr. Hazzard stated,
“I would like to congratulate the Minister for this timely interjection that will relieve the stress on the entire system through a prudent dispersal of funding right across the department.
“From Aggregated Schools Budget, school maintenance to youth provision this money will have a positive impact in delivering a better learning experience for all of our students.
“The many areas of the system that will benefit form this funding will create more certainty amongst the schools allowing to bring forward plan knowing that funding for two years has now been ring fenced.
“Sinn Fein is committed to building a world class education system and the Minister has proven that he is willing to put money into areas of need to tackle the inequalities that presently exist and I welcome that.”
