And if they want to change schools there wont be any of your Monkstown CBSs left. :(


Where?

If you are referring to CBC Monkstown. Yes Deputy Quinn is doing a bang up job helping to destroy schools like that. I predict half of fee paying schools will be gone by the end of the decade if this ill informed witchhunt continues with the Irish Times cheerleading it all the way. Enrollments are going through the floor. This has been the Irish Times pet for years and they have championed this debate for a long time. The IT have never looked properly at why some schools fail (LOCATION) and why others do well (LOCATION). There is a reason why public schools in South Dublin like Muckross and the two Coláiste's do well, the IT ignore it and go on about fee paying schools.

If Blackrock College was in a spot of bother I have no doubt that Quinn would cease this though, how and ever with nearly 2000 pupils they are safe. :x

The result of these closures this will be:

- More expensive private schools than ever. These will not be eliminated, ever.
- The parents who spend their money currently on these schools but will be priced out in the future will continue to spend money on their children's education in other ways (more grinds, more language trips ect) More Institute of Education type schools will open which will be very pricey but 2 year Leaving Cert grinds schools, again the "inequality" will continue in other ways.
- A worse public system with the Government footing the bill for the closures of fee paying schools
- Best teachers will now be plucked from the State system. The current system of all fee paying and public teachers being under the same Union agreements will be gone. We will get more Institute of Education type poaching with the now even more cashed up fee paying sector and grind schools, free from Government intervention, able to go after teacher with above Union rated salaries. Results, worse teachers in the public sector.

You were donig well until that. Perhaps the IoEs will steal, but the other private schools offer permanent positions and there just isn't the demand for IoEs.

All the Irish teachers I had at the secondary I went to were rubbish. The science teacher was rubbish. Both the art teachers were ignorant bollixes - one by 50 years of teaching the same stuff, the other because I wasn't any good and he wasn't prepared to take an interest :) . The history/geography teacher was notoriously rubbish. Religious teaching was a farce and confirmed my atheism. One of the sports teachers took an inappropriate interest in boys in showers and was moved overseas.

What can I say? Private school in Ireland, an elite business...

This is all nonsense and strawmen. We've refuted this nonsense repeatedly in the other thread.
Irish Times is very soft on fee paying schools. It shows your shrillness that you object to them even having an article about it. And they've had several in support over the last while - see other thread for George hook, and the Belvedere guy.

This "witchhunt" is far from "uninformed". You just don't like it so you call it a witchhunt.

Well, forgive us all if we take your views on education with a pinch of salt...

It's pretty mad that someone would put inequality in inverted commas on this. Two children who live beside a selective fee paying school. Both want to go. One gets to go. One doesn't. There's no inverted commas....that's just inequality. State supported inequality.

I must have missed the refutation of the bolded points, which seem pretty strong. Can you briefly reprise the argument or perhaps link to the refutation of how people willing to spend more on education will not arise if most currently private schools are forced into the 'free' system?

Two children live beside a totally state supported school with no fees. One gets to go, the other doesn't. Why? One's name was put down at birth, the other moved into the area later...

So what's your point paleface? Pick a system. They're all shit.

Come off it. On the other thread it is accepted that private schooling will exist. I just don't want to subsidise it. You expect me to weep because this guy won't be able to afford to segregate but others can? That's a strong point to you, is it?

Grinds and language trips growing exponentially? Who knows. Who cares.

People can use their own money as they see fit.

However State supported inequality shames us all.
