POTENTIAL REFORMS ANNOUNCED by Minister for Education Ruairi Quinn this morning could make it easier for students to opt-out of religion classes.

One option is to place these classes at the beginning or end of the school day, meaning that children could potentially be allowed to go home early if they don’t take the class.

We want to know what you think: Should children be allowed to go home early if they opt-out of religion classes?
