Department Of Education Allocate €10 Million For Schools To Buy IT Equipment

€7 million will be provided to secondary schools, while €3 million euro will be allocated to the primary sector to help students learn at home during the covid-19 crisis.

The funds will be used to purchase devices such as laptops, which will be loaned out to students who don't have access to the technology at home.

Schools are being asked to prioritise exam classes, and then to look at where else access to technology is most needed.
