Minister Ruairí Quinn wanted to be remembered as the minister who introduced school-based assessment for the Junior Cycle but, as we now know, he failed to achieve his objective.

Now we have Jan O'Sullivan wanting to be remembered as the minister who removed faith-based religious education from the primary schools and introduced a new education programme about Religion, Beliefs and Ethics (ERBE) through the NCCA. Sounds wonderful.

All our children will grow up to be tolerant of all religions, cultures and customs from around the world.
