Letters: When did schools start delegating STEM Education to Trade Unions and Football Clubs

Letters: When did schools start delegating STEM Education to Trade Unions and Football Clubs

STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) was traditionally the Job of Schools and their Teachers to impart such Education to Children . Now it appears , some Schools are using the services of Trade Unions and Football Clubs . A number of Schools in Clondalkin and Tallaght have signed up to a Unite Trade Union initiative in conjunction with Shamrock Rovers whereby activists from Unite will educate children on these subjects using their own methods . The launch of the programme took place on Tuesday with Schools such as St. Thomas’s NS in Tallaght , St. Bernadette’s NS in Clondalkin and Divine Mercy Balgaddy already

Letters : New Fine Gael Bill to ditch Men from directorship roles

A new Fine Gael Bill entitled the "corporate governance bill 2021" will force Companies to select directors based on their gender rather than the person's skills , abilities , merits and qualifications . Under the new Bill , 40% of people recruited for Directorships must be selected on the basis that they are female even if others so happen to be more qualified for the role . Announcing her Bill on social media , Fine Gael TD Emer Hiiggins (Dublin Mid West) says : Take a second to imagine a boardroom today in Ireland . Chances are you've thought of a lot of Men sitting around a table

Should Wealthy areas of Dublin take their fair share of refugees and asylum seekers

With the recent announcement by Government that it will take in hundreds of Afghan migrants under the Irish Refugee Protection Programme , cancel deportation orders on failed Afghan Asylum Seekers here and prioritise family reunification and Visas for Afghans , I ask the question , is it only fair that wealthy areas of Dublin take in their fair share . If the intention is to move these people into the poorer areas of Dublin where people are already struggling with homelessness and housing shortages , cant get their children into local schools because of overcrowding and large class sizes, and are struggling to find employment due to job

Social engineering is damaging to sport and society


There is seldom a week that passes where we dont hear some organisation calling for more diversity in society , be it in sports or politics or civil service etc .  

What these organisations do is look at groups in society in terms of peoples physical and sexual attributes such as skin colour , gender , sexual orientation etc with the intent of changing those groups to represent an equal balance of those attributes . 

For example , lets say there is a football team with 11 players and it so happens that those players are of the one skin colour  , the rule of Diversity says that this is wrong and the team must be changed to have an equal number of other skin colours . Indeed , People may remember comments by Brian Kerr a while ago when he said that the Irish Soccer team was "too white" . 

lets think about this for a second 

Your a football manager and you are tasked with going to games and picking players for your team . The criteria you are using is their skills and talent and Nothing more . At the end of the day you have picked all your players but wait , it so happens that the players you picked are of the one skin colour . The rule of diversity says that you should have considered skin colour as a criteria and you must change the team accordingly . 

After you have changed your team , the requirement then is to look at other characteristics such as the players sexual orientation , are they all straight , have you included gay or transgender players on your team , if not , go back to drawing board and start all over . 

What has this got to do with sport  ? the answer is absolutely nothing , whether a player is black , white , purple or green or whether a player is straight or gay or whatever ,  its irrelevant as those attributes are not going to improve the players skills level or abilities , but yet , the rule of diversity says you must consider it .

And that is how social engineering works  . Its about organising society based on peoples attributes such as skin colour , gender , sexual orientation etc rather than peoples merits and abilities . It is not a road any Country should go down but sadly in Ireland and all accross the western hemisphere , its now a pivotal part of government policy .
