    Default Ireland did well in latest international survey of pupils' literacy,maths and science

    See Irish students score above international average in maths, science, literacy - Irish Innovation News – Siliconrepublic.com and http://www.erc.ie/documents/pt_2011_...chievement.pdf

    While Ireland's performance of pupils was generally well above average in maths and science and excellent in reading,Northern Ireland did better in reading and maths than Ireland,while England did better in maths and science.Presumably,Ireland would do better than Northern Ireland and England in religion and a foreign language,the equivalent of Gaelic,if those were tested,given the disproportionately large amount of time devoted to them!

    I'll raise you this!

    We're failing to prepare pupils for jobs of the future

Not only should it remain compulsory, all schools should be transitioned to Irish-medium in the next few years.

    17th out of 50 in maths

    22nd out of 50 in science

    Sing it from the roof tops - we are streets ahead of botswana and Laos.
    We only trail all the so called "developed countries"

    The teachers, hard pressed and completely committed to the job must be forced, begrudgingly to all get a pay hike.

    Our Kids are not the dumbest on earth.
    Doesn't that make your heart sing.

    Hey Google.. we can math the hell out of sums..

    Irish is the language of the modern world. Its ridiculous that we don't teach our kids everything through it.
    We should also teach them other non redundant and relevant languages such as morse code or Semiphore so they can signal "Goodbye" to all the Multinationals who leave because they haven't a clue what we are talking about.

    I mean its nearly 1813.

    It would take a while to digest these stats here is an example from timss
    http://timssandpirls.bc.edu/timss201...M_Chapter1.pdf
    according to this chart Northern Ireland did the best of all Europeans listed which means the Irish did the best.
