first_imgFianna Fáil’s Education Spokesperson Charlie McConalogue has said there is a mounting threat to the future of small schools in Co Donegal as the Government continues to sit on a report which could determine their future.Charlie McConalogue TDIn response to questions from Deputy McConalogue in the Dáil, the Minister for Education Ruairí Quinn again refused to commit to a date for publishing the Value for Money review, which he has had since early this year.“Minister Quinn has been sitting on this report for about nine months now, while uncertainty looms over the future of schools with less than 85 pupils. This uncertainty is highly damaging, as parents will understandably be less likely to send their children to a local school whose future is in doubt,” explained Deputy McConalogue. “It’s my suspicion that this is exactly what Minister Quinn wants. He is deliberately creating uncertainty over the future of small schools as part of plan to squeeze them out. He has repeatedly cut resources for smaller schools and raised the pupil teacher ratio. It’s all part of a targeted attack aimed at forcing some small schools to merge or shut down entirely.”The Inishowen Deputy said Donegal will be particularly badly hit by this targeted attack.“We have among the highest number of smaller schools in the country, as well as a greater number of gaelscoileanna and minority faith schools. These schools cater for a vast geographical area and in many cases they provide much more to the local community than traditional teaching. Many of these schools have already lost a teacher and have seen their resources cut. Many now fear they could face closure.“This is a policy by a Dublin based Minister who appears to have no understanding of the enormous value that a local school, however small, adds to a rural community. His attack on small schools makes no consideration of a school’s ethos, its catchment area and the key role it plays in the local community.” He called on Minister Quinn to end this uncertainty, immediately publish the Value for Money review and come clean about his plans in relation to small schools.“Parents and staff of smaller schools throughout Donegal have a right to know where they stand,” said Deputy McConalogue. GOVT ENGAGED IN COVERT ATTACK ON DONEGAL SCHOOLS – McCONALOGUE was last modified: November 27th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Charlie McConalogueschoolslast_img read more

KDB Ten Hanjin Ships Up for Grabs

first_imgzoom The state-run Korea Development Bank (KDB), the main creditor of the former South Korean shipping giant Hanjin Shipping, has launched sales proceedings for ten Hanjin ships, Yonhap News Agency cited industry sources.The bank has reportedly asked the potential buyers of the ships, which include two container vessels and eight bulk carriers, to submit their bids by February 21.After the financially troubled shipping firm filed for court receivership in late August 2016, the company returned all ships bought with bank loans to its lenders.The latest vessels sale was announced a week after the Seoul Central District Court unveiled that it will end Hanjin Shipping’s rehabilitation process on February 17.In an effort to collect enough cash to pay back its creditors, the company opted to sell a number of its assets, including its entire Asia to US route network and operations on the routes, a number of containerships, as well as its overseas businesses.In early February, Hanjin’s 54 percent stake in Total Terminals International (TTI), the operator of two facilities in Long Beach and Seattle, was sold to Swiss-based Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) and South Korean Hyundai Merchant Marine (HMM) for a USD 78 million.Undertaken by MSC’s subsidiary Terminal Investment Limited (TIL) and HMM, the purchase includes all of Hanjin’s equity and shareholder loans in both TTI and the associated terminal equipment leasing company Hanjin TEC Inc.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more
