The Minister for Education Richard Bruton is due to publish the new Education (Parent and Student Charter) Bill over the coming weeks. According to the Irish Times
, the heads of the Bill were approved by the Cabinet recently and are due to be published soon by the Minister.
When enacted, the new legislation will require schools to put in place a parent and student charter based on key guidelines. It is expected that the legislation will require schools to provide performance updates to parents and students and will also provide more transparency on the handling of complaints.
According to the Times
, The New Bill could also see secondary students becoming full or partial members of boards of management while age-appropriate consultation with primary level students will be encouraged.
