Quinn's comments on teaching misguided

Regarding Ruairi Quinn's comments at a meeting of the Association of Community and Comprehensive Schools that "teaching religion takes up too much class time'', perhaps the minister might ask Fine Gael to apply the same logic to abolishing the teaching of religion in schools as they have to their proposed abolition of compulsory Irish: it clearly hasn't achieved what it was intended to, with less people practising religion now than at any other time in the Republic's history.
