Education Minister should get on his bike

SO the Education Minister has declared war on "unqualified teachers".

Meanwhile, the old chestnut of what qualifies a person to run Ireland remains. And the answer is that all that is required is to win in a general election; you don't even have to have sat the primary cert exam. You could then legislate to your heart's content without knowing diddly about anything -- although I heard that a previous minister once ran a bicycle shop.
