Two Line Tuesday

The government have finally published its circular on the new language curriculum, which will be starting this year. There doesn’t seem to be a huge amount of change and Jan O’Sullivan’s attempts to hype it up as a big deal are a little bit desperate.

It’s back to school time for many pupils and we wish you all the best for the upcoming school year.

There’s rarely any good news stories about primary education in Ireland, less so from the Irish Independent, so nice to see we’re in the news for the right reasons. While I’m not particularly happy with how they’re measuring the success, I’m happy to take the good news in the media! http://www.independent.ie/irish-news/education/primary-pupils-significantly-better-at-maths-and-reading-than-five-years-ago-30901034.html
