Minister to attend educational meeting in Tralee.

A regional educational meeting is to be held in Tralee as part of Minister Noel Dempsey`s new consultation process on education. The Minister will attend up to 16 public regional meetings over an eight week period to hear what people have to say about the Irish education system. The consultation document entitled “Your Education System” raises a number of issues including topics such as the return of a primary cert type exam, providing information about the quality of schools, indiscipline and inadequate teachers. The document is to be circulated to schools, colleges, public libraries, business and parent organizations in the county.
