Minister for Education Norma Foley
Norma Foley; the perfect example of what not to do in politics.
1. Get elected, just like your father
2. Make large promises about a sensitive subject
3. Go missing for 3 weeks
4. Play down comparison to a similar system who equally failed
5. Go missing again
6. Get found out.

Further to Gradesgate…
The Sinn Féin spokesperson for education Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire has called on Education Minister Norma Foley to make a statement in the Dáil on errors which have been spotted in the calculated grades system.
He also said that she should take questions from TDs following her statement.
“The Minister for Education needs to come before the Dáil urgently, make a statement and answer the many serious questions that now arise.
“According to the Taoiseach, the government knew about these errors last week. The second round of CAO offers went out last Wednesday. Did the government allow the second round offers to proceed knowing that these problems existed?” he asked.
He said that 800 and 900 students may have lost out of their college place due to the errors.
