The Oireachtas Education and Social Protection Committee are compiling a report dedicated to identifying strategies to combat educational disadvantage at the earliest stage of a child's development.
As a first step, I am inviting local groups, interested parties and educational leaders to participate in a Workshop on 'Empowering the Community to Teach the Child- An Integrated Approach to Eradicating Educational Disadvantage.' This is a chance to look at community based approaches to eradicating educational disadvantage - and decide how we can act on our ideas.
If you have an interest in attending the workshop, please make contact with my office on 01 857-4020 or firstname.lastname@example.org
The Seminar will help to inform the report that will be adopted by the Oireachtas committee when completed and then forwarded to the Minister.
