Everything else is an expression of the disdain you mentioned towards 14 years of rote learning of reading and writing.

Change how it is taught in the morning , wait 30 years and if we are no further along I will happily join your side of the argument.
This was never ever going to happen.

Personally I think it's only a matter of time before it becomes optional.
Anytime the argument comes up the only gang in favour of mandatory Irish are those who make their living from it.

Default Compulsory Irish in Schools A Mistake

Maybe its because so many of them have Irish Passports now so they arent counted as foreign?
