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.

Firstly, the culture is not supportive of teaching.

Secondly, the senior teams are seldom skilled in the area of performance management.

Thirdly, there is no effective management system which drives performance.
