The revised circulars make provision for the appeal of a school’s refusal to grant an exemption from the study of Irish. The Minister will establish a panel of persons with expertise in children’s learning from which a Process Appeals Board could be drawn, as an interim measure, subject to review of operation after two years. This would allow the new processes to bed down pending the enactment of the Parent and Student Charter Bill. It is envisaged that the Process Appeals Board would meet twice a year to consider cases which could not be resolved at school level. The Board would be formed from a panel comprising relevant experts such as Inspectors/former Inspectors, psychologists/former psychologists from NEPs and educationalists (e.g. from Higher Education Institutions).
