  • Community National School Drowns in Tweets

    Yesterday we learned that Richard Bruton wants the ETB to go around asking schools to divest to other patrons, one of which is actually the ETB itself. Not only that, now that we’ve nearly managed to stop wasting money on paying rent on prefabs, the government now want to pay the Catholic Church up to […]

  • What you might not know about the ETB Community National School model

    With the news today that Richard Bruton wants the ETB to lead an “identification process” to ascertain which Catholic schools will divest to multi-denominational patrons (one of which is the ETB itself) and once they choose the one they like, the government will pay them between €10k and €20k per annum to “lease” the school, […]

  • Anseo.net Review of 2016

    2016 has widely been acknowledged as being a very difficult year. Whatever angle one viewed the year, it was a worrying one.

In Europe, we saw countries closing their borders to people fleeing the […]

  • Two Line Tuesday: Merry Christmas

    It’s the last Two Line Tuesday before the holidays. A very happy Christmas and New Year from Anseo.net.

  • Two Line Tuesday: Coding

    I imagine that Richard Bruton is thinking, ‘If I say “coding in schools” enough times, eventually everyone will believe in it. I won’t actually provide any support, infrastructure, funding or training but it’s going to happen and nothing could possibly go wrong.’

  • A Look at the Action Plan for Education

    The Action Plan for Education was published today by Minister Richard Bruton. The government aims for Ireland to have the best education and training system in Europe by 2026.

  • Two Line Tuesday: Sex Education

    According to a recent study, (see here), students feel that Sex Education is negative, out of touch and gendered. With over 90% of schools in Ireland forced to teach sex education from a negative, out of touch and gendered point of view, (see here), it’s hardly surprising.

  • Review: The School Directory

    The School Directory is a new service for schools to search for and find substitute teachers and SNAs. It enters a market where text-a-sub is king and the INTO Sub Search is not far behind it and both of them are completely free to teachers and schools.
