Colm O'Rourke: Teachers should rip up the Croke Park deal now and save education

I've changed my mind as this agreement will not improve how our children are taught, writes Colm O'Rourke

With most of the attention firmly focused on the election, the issue of public sector reform will rear its ugly head during the debates.

To most people who are not in the public sector these reforms should mean more work from fewer workers and for less money too. Of course, it should be about most of those things but the whole idea of efficiency and getting rid of bad practice should be at least as big a part of it all.

When I see the Croke Park agreement as it applies to teachers, it certainly does not fill me with much confidence.
