McHugh faces tough oral exam in Dail chamber

The Education Minister will face questions in the Dáil this afternoon on the decision to scrap the Leaving Cert.

The Dáil resumes this afternoon as TDs continue to quiz the government on the ongoing response to the Coronavirus.

This afternoon Education Minister Joe McHugh will field questions just days after he announced the cancellation of the Leaving Cert.

There's been mixed views on the predictive grading model teachers will be enforcing and still many questions from leaving cert students and their families about how the system will impact them.
