The main focus of the government and peoples concern is the economy, but how about the education? Education is a value in that nobody can steal them away from you, it drives a nation to be productive. On the other hand, if the economy is improving the quality of education increases. Which brings us the question, should the government prioritize the economy more than education?

Well compared to other countries, E1200 per year is nothing, especially when the likes of the US (including the uni I work for) charge between 21k and 41k per year for undergrads.) Give me a job in ireland and I would take it for my little kids
My education is costing a lot more than €1200 a year. Thanks for belittling it though, 1200 is not 'nothing' to most Irish people!
i agree with leadlighting. Education always raises a weak economy. Look at what happened in India in the last 30 years.
Part of what you say resonates with me, but I think a nation comprised largely of people who cannot read, write, or count would be even worse than the nation of factory fodder produced by the current systems.
