"Have your say" - National Council for Curriculum and Assess

Post by canasta42 » Tue Jun 26, 2012 7:17 pm

The National Council for Curriculum and Assessment is asking for comments from parents, teachers and students
on "... what should our curriculum priorities be at primary (school)?"

Following is the link to the website form:

I, of course, told them that there should be NO 'religion' taught in state funded schools; less time wasted on trying to teach Irish language (to little effect); modern languages to be introduced at age 4; and more teaching of an appreciation of the natural world and scientific approaches to answering questions about it. Did I forget anything.

Please submit your own ideas to them.

Thanks for the reminder. I threw in the no religion; more scientific method; respecting the planet; Irish as a language and not an exam code; community and co-operative activities and ending compulsory soccer.
