    I am completing a PME in Post Primary Education and my thesis will be examining why students (girls in particular) do not choose Economics for the Leaving Certificate. In some instances schools don’t even offer the subject as an course option.
    I would be very appreciative if you could advise of some Irish research papers that would be aligned with my research topic.
