Throughout our history, Fianna Fáil has been behind dramatic expansions at every level of the education system. By any measure the scale and pace of increased participation in education in this country have been dramatic and extraordinary.
Education has a broad-ranging impact on many aspects of life, from personal development to civic engagement and economic well-being. However there are still many communities throughout the country who are not fully reaping in the benefits from Ireland’s education system.
Reducing school failure, improving educational outcomes for disadvantaged pupils and ensuring fair and equitable access to third level for all pupils is a key priority in Fianna Fáil’s education policy agenda.
