08 Oct Submission on Leaving Certificate Reform
This week the Dyslexia Association of Ireland made an important submission to the Oireachtas Joint Committee on Education, Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science as part of the Committee’s examination of Leaving Certificate Reform. Our submission focused on three broad areas, namely (i) How We Teach, (ii) How We Assess, and (iii) a Strength-Based Approach to Choice and Progression. You can read our full submission and recommendations to the Committee at https://bit.ly/3BlPiun.
We hope that the Committee, the government and its agencies will listen to the overwhelming voices calling for change to the Leaving Certificate and Senior Cycle. This is an opportunity to make real and meaningful changes, modernising our system, and prioritising the needs and wellbeing of students, especially those with additional needs such as dyslexia.
