Aoibhinn, who taught maths in secondary school and is a lecturer in mathematics, tweeted her support on the topic earlier today.

The broadcaster retweeted a link showing a news article about Education Minister Ruairi Quinn’s comments under the headline: ‘Higher Level maths ‘mandatory’ for primary teachers’.

The minister made his comment during the Irish National Teachers’ Organisation (INTO) annual conference earlier today. 

“Finally! This would have been the first thing I did as Minister for Education,” she wrote.

And it appears that Aoibhinn received a number of tweets about it.

In another post, she made reference to not being able to deal with all individual comments.

However, she did write: “Don't have time to deal with all comments on HL maths for primary teachers individually-but research shows you need more content knowledge.”
