Teaching material

The availability and quality of teaching material is bad.

Remarks

The main problem at the moment is the supply of teachers, who are willing and able to teach in an immersion education setting. We also need to develop standardized reading tests for the Irish language and materials to help children with learning difficulties through the medium of Irish.
