New statistics show that private schools still have greater numbers of students progressing to third-level.
ACCORDING TO THE latest statistics, private schools still lead the way by some distance in the rates of students progressing to third-level education.
Half of the countryâ€™s fee-paying schools recorded all of its pupils progressing to some form of third-level education in 2017, reports both the Irish Times and the Irish Independent.
Pupils in public schools, meanwhile, are statistically less likely to go on to third-level, particularly in areas of economic disadvantage.
Rates of third-level participation across the country has increased sharply in recent decades, but there are other avenues available to those in pursuing a career.
So, today weâ€™re asking you: Do we put too much emphasis on third-level/going to college?
