DESCRIPTION OF CONTENTS:

The submission gives an extensive overview of Traveller culture, incorporating Travellers & education, and Travellers & early school leaving.
It indicates that the Traveller Education Strategy should focus on the achievement of two broad objectives, one immediate and the other long-term:
• to improve the quality of participation in, and outcomes of, education for Travellers;
• by so doing to prevent, pre-empt and alleviate the difficulties Travellers face in Irish society.
Bearing this in mind it outlines change on a variety of levels – paradigm, system, institution and practice.

COMMENTS ON THIS PUBLICATION:

The implementation of the strategy has the capacity to change and improve early school leaving and life experience of the Travelling Community in Ireland
