Second-level schools across the country were closed, sending around 350,000 students home, as teachers staged a strike against the Junior Cycle reforms. In the reforms, teachers’ assessment of student performance would form 40% of the certification. Teachers’ unions, however, have insisted that external assessment is critical to educational standards. Another day of strike has been announced for January 2015.
