Curriculum Reform: Innovation in Education
Education has to constantly evolve and grow to meet the needs of our ever changing society. In recent years the pace of change has become very rapid and in certain areas, our education system has struggled to implement the changes needed to keep pace.
Educate Together is a strong advocate of innovation in education and the reform of our education system. The Educate Together movement grew from a desire to change primary education in Ireland - to give parents a say in their children's education and place the child at the centre of the education experience. The innovations these first Educate Together schools brought totally changed the primary education landscape.
As a organisation now supporting a growing network of 74 schools, Educate Together is now an important voice in the development of educational policy in Ireland. Our more recent submissions to the Department of Education and Skills are available here.
