DCU president seeks ‘coherence’ in Irish education.


AN EDUCATION think tank should be established to address the “incoherence” of the Irish education system, according to Prof Brian MacCraith, president of Dublin City University.

Delivering the keynote address at a major school-management conference, he said Ireland was at a critical point in its education history.

Fundamental reform was needed, he said, to reverse downward trends and to ensure future prosperity.
