Motion: Development Proposal 264 Coláiste Dhoire
This Assembly notes with concern the decision of the Minister of Education to approve Development Proposal 264 to establish a new grant-aided, independent Irish Medium Post-Primary school Coláiste Dhoire at Owenbeg, Dungiven; further notes that this decision was taken contrary to official advice from the Western Education and Library Board, the North Eastern Education and Library Board, the Education and Training Inspectorate, the Ministerial Advisory Group on Irish Medium Education and his own Department; and calls on both the Minister of Education and the Executive, in the context of ongoing budgetary pressures, to review this decision on the grounds of rationality, affordability and sustainability.
