Abstract

OPINION: THE TOP justification for The Irish Times publishing lists of transfer rates from schools to third-level education (November 22nd and 28th) is they provide the “most comprehensive source of information on schools for parents”. This questionable assertion is made as if the exercise is innocent and neutral.
