Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Secondary School Teacher/Student Ratio.


(Cavan) asked the Minister for Education the teacher/student ratio in secondary schools and how it compares with teacher/student ratios in vocational schools and community schools.

In the current year the overall ratio of pupils to recognised teachers in secondary schools is 19.4:1. This compares with an authorised ratio of 17.5:1 for day-continuation pupils in vocational schools.

No community school is yet in operation.
