Sample text

The Irish were very good at rebellion! Two core values were, however, claimed and developed, the values of religion and education. One might postulate that these values became synonymous, for the Irish, with freedom and identity. Within the eight hundred years of Irish/English history there are parallel stories of positive and negative influences by England on Irish institutional development. The educational system was influenced as part of the institutional life. There are some differences. Though adopting the English language in the 19th century, the majority of the Irish people have studied the native Gaelic language in their primary and secondary schooling and there are specific schools in many parts of the country where Gaelic is the first language.

Primary education starts at age 6 and is organized in six grades. Secondary education is organized in six further grades and has been compulsory up to the age of 18 since 1984. Secondary education offers several tracks: the classical general orientation which gives access to university, a more technically oriented track and a professionally oriented track. Higher education is available in a variety of institutions which offer 'short' and more technically oriented curricula of two or three years and 'long' curricula of mostly four or five years, mainly organized in universities.

Mutual acceptance among members in a group increases with the duration of their association and the frequency of their interactions, and this needs time (Graumann and Kruse, 1976). In general, it can be said that more affective education takes place in those schools committed to pedagogical reforms (comprehensive schools and so-called reform schools) and in those schools where the low achievers and underprivileged pupils are concentrated (Hauptschulen and special schools for children with learning disabilities) (based on Dreesmann, 1982).
