Almost one quarter of the Irish population are learners which generates a significant level of interest with journalists that write and comment on the development of education policy and training services. Officials at my Department's press office on a daily basis respond to media queries and engage with national and regional commentators in the print, radio and television media regarding developments in the education sector that concern my Department.
