Children's Rights Alliance Report Card 2011

The Irish Government gets D- regarding children's education, health, wellbeing and safeguarding.

Children's Rights Alliance's Report Card 2011 continues the analysis of key Government commitments in the specific areas of education, health, material wellbeing, and safeguarding childhood. The organisation feels that the commitments selected in these four broad areas are clear and measurable and have the potential to improve the lives and life chances of all children in Ireland.

Report Card 2010 saw deterioration in Government’s performance, and reflected that in its ‘D-’ grade, demonstrating Government’s barely acceptable performance and the limited positive impact policies were
having on children’s lives. This grade did not improve in Report Card 2011; Government still gets a ‘D-’.
