Irish government to propose takeover of many Catholic schools
August 02, 2010
The Irish government has given Catholic Church leaders a list of the areas where it hopes to assume control of schools currently administered by the Church, the Irish Catholic reports.
The government has not set a schedule for assuming control of the schools, but has acknowledged that it would need to “re-allocate existing finances” to run them, the Irish Catholic reports. The story indicates that the government will present a proposal for taking over schools in 30 areas, mostly around Dublin.
