Patronage and Pluralism Forum 10 years on: The Solution and The Future

Published on: 30th April, 2022

As I’m sure you’ve probably figured out by now, I could talk about the Forum on Patronage and Pluralism forever and I’m sure I’ll be coming back to it many times again. There are so many stories that blossomed from it, whether it was the struggle for Castlebar or the scaremongering in Malahide, and I’m sure there will be many more stories as Ireland stutters its way out of church control of schools, for example, I imagine the reconfiguration story, which I discussed a few weeks ago is going to be very interesting. However, I’ve spoken a lot about the past ten years so it’s only fair to let you know what I would do if I were the Minister for Education. After all, it is the point of this podcast.

About the Podcast

Anseo.net - If I were the Minister for Education
An Irish Primary Education Podcast
How many times have you said to yourself, "If I were the Minister for Education…?" Well I do! Rather than grumble to myself, I decided to podcast my thoughts on ways I'd change the primary education system in Ireland. Every episode I'll take on a different theme, give some background and hopefully come to some conclusions by the end.
