The Real Cost of School in 2016

School Costs Survey 2016

Our annual School Costs Survey was completed by 1,476 parents in Summer 2016. Once again, parents showed us that the cost of school is excessively high, and puts a huge burden on many families.

A School Costs Survey briefing paper is also available, with detailed analysis of the 2016 results. You can also download this 1 page Fact Sheet with key findings from the survey.


Take Action

Education in Ireland is supposed to be free for all children, but yet again our survey has showed that this is far from the case. Something has to change. Will you take a minute today to take action on this issue? We're contacting TDs across the country and asking them to raise this important issue in the Dail. Will you add your name to this call?
