In some ways, everyone probably already knows that secondary schools are funded better than primary schools. However, to what extent is this true? In this episode, I explore the different areas where primary schools are left behind and I argue that in most cases there is no good reason.

Before that, we look at any relevant news that hit the newspapers this week including: why we aren't teaching Irish badly, a new General Secretary and a senator's plans to get us all teaching yoga!
