  1. I find it surprising that all schools seem to have a religious agenda in Ireland and that there is such a small non denominational offering. 60% of school aged children here attend state schools. Government run but sadly grossly underfunded. The remaining 40% go to private non denominational or religious schools, arguably because the education is better but in reality because the fees provide for better facilities and smaller class sizes.

  2. A radical government would seek a complete separation of church and state and an education system that was not used to prop up churches that have not confidence that the Gospel stands on its own merits. The present system means huge resources being expended on religion and means the church is filled with nominal members.
