Irish Education - History and Structure

£22.99

Product description

First published in 1981, this is a reprint from 1985. The book covers the previous twenty years relating to the changes in the Irish education system during which time there were unprecedented changes. The changes can only be understood against the historical. 'Irish education: its history and structure' is the first full length treatment that develops this approach. Educational changes both past and present are seen not in isolation, but set in their ideological, social and economic framework.
As well as examining the present structures in detail from primary school to university, the second part of 'Irish Education: its history and structure' analyses the issues that typically harass educationalists, such as the stress between curriculum needs and exam demands; management boards' the role of the central department; third level policy' comprehensive schools and teacher education.
Although primarily aimed at students of education, this unique overall perspective will appeal to all involved directly - pupils, parents and teachers - and indirectly - politicians, administrators and taxpayers - in Irish education.

Paperback. Front cover slightly worn and paste-down end paper marked. The owner has made some [pencil comments in the book and underlined some sentences.
