Gain Irish exemption for 14 year old daughter with Dyslexia

Change the outdated education system in Ireland for other children with Dyslexia. Improve the education choices for children like my daughter who have to do Irish because they do not have an exemption. She has been given permission to drop French and Geography to allow her extra time for learning support, which others in her class get when they are not doing Irish.

Why is this important?

It is important because 1. Irish being a compulsory subject in this country is of little importance to my daughter who struggles with reading and writing in English because of her dyslexia. 2. Because of an outdated educational psychology system in Ireland my daughter can drop 2 other subjects to give her time for learning support.
