More than 5550,000 Irish children are taught in large classes in under-funded primary school. We are asking people to stand up for primary education by asking TD’s to

  • Reduce class sizes to the EU average (starting now and fully achieved by 2021)
    • Irish classes have an average of 25 compared to an EU average of 21 per class
  • Fund primary schools the same as second-level schools
    • Primary 92c per day per pupil to cover running costs of the school
    • Secondary €1.77 per day per pupil to cover running costs of the school

Please e mail your local TD by going to

  • Select ‘Email your local TD’ and select her/his constituency
  • The programme will generate an email address for the relevant TDs and a pre-worded email.
