The Defiant Migrant Kids

Before July of this year thousands of legally resident non-EU migrant children, who had grown up, gone to secondary school and in some cases, primary school in Ireland, were forced to pay expensive international third-level fees.

While also being barred from applying for grants – thus preventing many from attending college.

In July, following a sustained campaign by the Migrant Right Centre of Ireland’s Migrant Education Access group – which involved researching, strategising, appearing in the media and meeting with politicians and policymakers – the MEA group won a major concession from Education Minister Ruairi Quinn.

The right to be treated the same crappy way as any Irish student entering third-level education.

Mmmf.
