Out Canvassing in Donabate

Out Canvassing in Donabate

Ifedinma, Tony, Ake and myself were out canvassing again last Saturday – this time in Donabate. With about 3000 doors knocked we still have a long way to go, but it is really heartening to hear so many people agreeing with my views on digital democracy. The cynics are wrong – people do want to have a voice and are a lot more informed politically than the main parties give them credit for.

School Admissions

School Admissions

 

Although the State is technically responsible for education, in that there is a Ministry that nominally oversees it and the State provides a large chunk of educational funding, the entire Irish school system lacks central coordination. That means that schools set their own admissions policies, and in doing so they are explicitly allowed to make certain discriminations, eg. in favour of children confirmed in a certain religion or in favour of children of past pupils, etc.
