Adopting a life story approach, the book serves to initiate and enhance the practice of remembering secondary school education amongst those who attended secondary schools not just in Ireland, but around the world and explores a range of schools including Diocesan Colleges, Christian Brothers' schools, schools run by other orders of brothers and priests, schools run by Mercy and Presentation nuns, schools run by other orders of nuns, Protestant schools and other categories of secondary schools. The year 2017 will mark the 50th anniversary of the introduction of 'the free education scheme' for second-level schooling in Ireland and considered against this background the book will make a significant addition to the history of secondary school education internationally and will be of interest to academics, students, policymakers and educationalists across history, sociology, education and Irish studies"--"@en ;
