Letters: When did schools start delegating STEM Education to Trade Unions and Football Clubs

 
STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) was traditionally the Job of Schools and their Teachers to impart such Education to Children . 

Now it appears , some Schools are using the services of Trade Unions and Football Clubs .

A number of Schools in Clondalkin and Tallaght have signed up to a Unite Trade Union initiative in conjunction with Shamrock Rovers whereby activists from Unite will educate children on these subjects using their own methods . 

The launch of the programme took place on Tuesday with Schools such as St. Thomas’s NS in Tallaght , St. Bernadette’s NS in Clondalkin and Divine Mercy Balgaddy already named as participants . 
  

We are pleased to launch a major STEM education initiative in conjunction with Unite the Union and Sphero Sports. The launch took place today when children from St. Thomas’s NS, Tallaght & St. Bernadette’s NS, Clondalkin were introduced to the programme

 As part of our UniteChampionsCup sponsorship Unite this morning launched a major STEM education initiative in partnership with League of Ireland champions Shamrock Rovers & Sphero Sports

We are delighted to be part of this great initiative and we are looking to working with Shamrock Rovers and Unite Unionover the next few months

Questions for Parents 

If its a case that these Schools have delegated the work because their existing teaching methods for Maths and Science have failed , why did they not notify parents that they're own teaching methods had failed and they needed to engage the services of the Unite Trade Union and Shamrock Rovers to teach their pupils about these subjects ?? 

Another question would be what qualifications the Unite Trade Union has to teach Children Maths and Science ? What Qualifications does Shamrock Rovers have to teach Children about Maths and Science . Where did these organisations do their teacher training and why are these schools promoting the product of a private company (Spheros) .

What does Unite Trade Union get out of it ? Why would a trade union want access to Children ??? . Thats a big question too . 

These Questions need to be asked and answered . Will they be answered - probably not , Can they be asked - YES . It just takes one parent to put these questions to the School .

There needs to be rules put in place to govern schools interaction with outside agencies and organisations .

It seems crazy that a school principle can bring any organisation they like into a school to talk to children

In 1961 , President Éamon de Valera became the first person to appear on RTE Telefís Éireann . Addressing the public de Valera gave a cautious welcome to the new service. I am privileged in being the first to address you on our new service, Telefís Éireann. I hope the service will provide for you all sources of recreation and pleasure, but also information, instruction, and knowledge. I must admit that sometimes when I think of television and radio and their immense power I feel somewhat afraid. Like atomic energy, it can be used for incalculable good but it can also do irreparable harm. Never before was there in the hands of
