Make history a compulsory Junior Cert Subject

History should be a core Junior Cert subject

Why is this important?

It is important that we all have an understanding of our past. Without this it is difficult to analyse and gain perspective on the events of today.
History offers us an important way to learn and hear the stories of the people and events that have shaped Ireland and the world today.
Young people growing up today need to be able to relate to what has happened in the past in order to make sense of how our society works.


Reasons for signing

  • It is an absolute travesty that Irish people will be left ignorant of their own nation's past because politicians have seen it fit to remove history as a core Junior Cert subject.
