Minister does the maths

THOSE teachers who tried to humiliate the Education Minister yesterday, shoving Seanie FitzPatrick masks and anti-NAMA posters in her face and jostling her and shouting would have been better advised to listen to what she had to say.
Of course they are fed up hearing that the Government will have to spend less on public services. If the message has not sunk in by now it never will.
More excitingly, Mary Coughlan told the school teachers that she favours a bonus point system for higher Leaving Cert maths, to encourage more students to embrace maths, science and technology at third level.
