There is no doubt that the Irish people are behind the rest of the world in industries, and there is a concensus of opinion that the reason is the unindustrial and impractical character of our primary education. With regard to the first point there is no need to quote proofs. The flood of foreign-made goods, and the comparative absence of Irish ones is obvious to all. As to the second, as an introduction to this paper, I shall quote three eminently typical and trustworthy authorities.
