Ceisteanna (190)

Seán Crowe

Ceist:

266 Mr. Crowe asked the Minister for Education and Science the reason none of the public meetings in the Your Education System consultation process are taking place in Donegal; and if he will reconsider this decision and arrange for a meeting to be held there bearing in mind the large geographic size of the county will make it difficult for people to travel to other meetings.

A total of 17 public meetings have been scheduled as part of this process. These include a public meeting in Sligo on 12 February 2004 and a public meeting in Letterkenny on 19 February 2004.

I have not ruled out the possibility of holding additional meetings, if it becomes clear during the next few weeks that there is a demand for these. Members of the public can also access the process through the websitewww.youreducation.ie or by writing to The Secretariat, Your Education System, Educational Research Centre, Drumcondra, Dublin 9.
