A contemporary snapshot of Irish education, this book positions 21st-century Irish education at the centre of the creation of the knowledge economy. Divided into three parts, it outlines the challenges and changes presented as a result of a changing education system and society.

The book is divided into three parts, each dedicated to a specific theme:
Part one: The Changing System
* Charts selected changes that have taken place in Irish education in the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries
* Considers education's role in building a knowledge economy and social cohesion
Part two: Diversity & Inclusion in Schools
* Analyses the changes in Irish schools based on the results of original research on change, diversity, inclusion and on ethnicity, disability and social class disadvantage
* Draws together key findings relating to the impact of increasing diversity in Irish schools in comparison with international trends
Part three: Teacher Education for Changing Times
* Presents research on teacher education at all stages of the teaching career and discusses how teachers can adapt to the challenges of change
* Highlights new evidence relating to the recruitment, formation and continuing professional development of teachers
