This week (May 31st) the SNA allocations were released to primary schools. It had been promised that a new frontloading model was to be used but for a third year in a row, school allocations were frozen. In this episode, I examine:
why the representative bodies rarely, if ever, publicly condemn the NCSE
why the SNA allocations come out so late in the year
whether there were actually 1,100 extra SNA posts sanctioned as the headlines read.
