Joint Oireachtas Committee on Education and Skills

Leaving Certificate Reform: Discussion with School Management Bodies

Mr. John Irwin:

We do. We agree with the Senator on the point about content changing, but we cannot have a curriculum that is totally devoid of content. We must have some content. I agree with her that the current system for the leaving certificate is based far too much on content and recall rather than analytical skills. I will stop there and allow other speakers to respond.
