School attendance in Ireland
Citation:Ryan, Frederick W. 'School attendance in Ireland'. - Dublin: Journal of the Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland,Vol. XII Part XCII, 1911/1912, pp583-594
In this paper your attention is drawn to the Irish Education Act of 1892, upon the efficient working of which must positively depend?as I hope to confirm by figures?the general success of Irish Elementary Education as a whole; and as an indirect consequence the future character and industrial development of the nation. It is proposed, therefore, to examine the nature of School Attendance required by law, and to note the lines along which is carried the principle of compulsion embodied in the Act in question.
