Save Our Reading Schools

Stop the closure of our Reading schools. There are three special Reading schools in Dublin which cater exclusively for children with Dyslexia using the Wilson Reading System. Children stay for two years, allowing them to return to mainstream education thriving and reading. The NCSE are planning to close them. But there will be a €22m white water rafting facility in the Docklands for corporate events, we can afford that.

Why is this important?

"However small the chance might be of striking lucky, the chance was always there." - Roald Dahl.
We have promised to cherish the children of this nation equally. Every child deserves the chance to read and thrive.
