A New History of Ireland, Volume VI


Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the historical development in pre-university education in Ireland during the period from 1870 to 1922. This period was characterised by three brief flashes of optimism against a background of educational inertia and disappointment. These moments of optimism include the approval of a parliamentary grant for academic secondary schools in 1878, the establishment of the Irish technical school system in 1899, and the revision of the national school curriculum in 1900. The chapter also describes the educational innovations in intermediate schools during this period.
