Dáil Eireann Debate
Mr. Faulkner: Pupil guidance in the sense in which it arises in post-primary schools does not arise in primary schools. The problem in these latter schools is mainly one of ascertaining pupils who are in need of remedial teaching.
A system of remedial teaching has been developed in primary schools; and in larger schools, and subject to certain conditions, a teacher additional to the normal staff warranted may be appointed for remedial work. In smaller schools it is sometimes found possible, through a degree of reorganisation, to provide remedial teaching for pupils requiring such special attention.
Mr. Faulkner: I have pointed out that the problem of pupil guidance, as we understand it in post-primary schools, is not available, but the basic consideration in relation to primary schools is in connection with remedial teaching.
