Equality in Education

Our Education System

Is it fair?

Over 96% of Irish National Schools are patronised by churches of various denominations with the vast majority under a Catholic ethos. This means that the majority of children in schools are forced to sit in a classroom where their belief system (or lack of it) is permeating throughout the school day. With over 90% of schools teaching some form of faith formation outside of the discrete religious instruction time, it is impossible for a child to be fully respected or included during the school day. This very obvious problem is not considered an issue at any level with no political party committing to change and over 85% of teachers thinking that their school is inclusive to children with a different faith or none. This page is dedicated to demonstrating the inequalities faced by minorities.
