More details from petition creator

Kerry Education Service – the VEC in County Kerry – does not accept and will strongly oppose the government decision of October 12th 2010 to downgrade the VEC in Kerry by amalgamation with City and County Limerick VEC’s. To fail to do so would be to fail to protect the educational, social and economic well-being and interests of the people of Kerry. Since the amalgamation of Town of Tralee VEC and Co. Kerry VEC in 1998, KES has developed a vigorous, modern and progressive education service in the county, supporting and developing schools and reaching into every corner of the county with adult and further education provision. In 2009 KES provided education for 3,000 second level students and 11,000 further and adult education students. KES employ 1,000 staff, county wide, and process over 2,600 third level grants and just under 1,000 school transport forms annually. This locally managed quality education service is essential to meet the needs of the people of Kerry.
