17th January 2014 - Draft IPPN Statement on Book Rental

IPPN recognises the value to schools of having a book rental scheme in place, particularly in areas of acute disadvantage.

IPPN is encouraged that Minister Quinn recognises that schools require government support to set up book rental schemes due to the prohibitive start-up costs.

However, IPPN is disappointed that Minister Quinn did not see fit to treat all schools equally when reaching a decision on the allocation of funding. This is an affront to proactive schools that have already established Book Rental Schemes from the proceeds of fundraising or the diversion of capitation funding.

IPPN is making representations on behalf of these schools to the Minister and will keep you informed of developments
