A tad condescending would you agree? I'm sure most of us would agree there is more than one road that can be followed but the idea of the thread is to tease this out. Better than the "let's just ban fee paying schools and that will solve everything". I suppose we can just carry on doing the same thing year after year. We've all been through the system and some have had children through the system - based on the outcomes it could do with some radical change.You cant simply transfer one system onto another. Major Cultural factors. You can borrow ideas here and there but not the entire system. Ireland is a much more uneven society than Finland for a start. Only idiots and god knows there are plenty on this thread ,would think you can just deal with education problems in the school.
For those genuinely interested-watch this. For the rest of you back to the pub talk..
