Dr. David Doyle, Stephanie Thompson, Muiread Murphy and Marie Muldoon have published an article entitled ‘ Economic Obstacles to Education in Ireland ’ in the Journal of Human Rights Practice. This policy note highlights the costs of sending a child to school in Ireland and explores the extent to which these represent a significant economic barrier to schooling for low-income families. It also evaluates the efforts to reduce early school leaving and examines the increasing commodification of education in Ireland. The research was funded by the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission.
