Just listened to Senator Gerard Craughwell (past President TUI) being interviewed by Ivan Yates. Effectively another spokesman for teachers - quick to tell us what parents want and don't want. According to Mr. Craughwell it's clear that parents don't want their children assessed by teachers.
Not clear to me. Perhaps I am the dissenting parent? I want two things: (1) I want teachers assessed and (2) I want students assessed by teachers who have themselves been assessed.
Mr Craughwell referenced his having completed assessments of his pupils for 20 years or more. Good on him. He was also clear that the teachers' issues relate to resources and time - not money. So sounds like what is needed is some basic business process reengineering - applied to teaching.
And - just in case anyone is confused - let me state again: I completely oppose teachers striking on this issue. This will undoubtedly be a surprise to Mr. Craughwell, the TUI and the ASTI.

It seems on the face of it assessment is transparency. To downgrade the current junior cert without proper support will only destroy the tranparency the current exam system. Ireland is too small and too corrupt for self assessment. How many teachers would be approached to fix 40 per cent for jonnie. In england they went there and now have seen the errors of their ways
