Ethics lessons in our schools

THE topic of religion in schools in Ireland is still being debated after all these years, but it is time a system that deals with the ethics and beliefs for those of all faiths and none is introduced.

We are a multi-cultural country now, and the Catholic Church influence has been eroded with the opening of minds as well as the influx of people from different nations. And with education being key to development in children, the sooner the option of alternatives are introduced, the better for everyone's future.
