3 Year Irish Education Study Identifies Links Between Gifted Teenage Schoolchildren Battling Depression & The Mocks

3 Year Irish Education Study Identifies Links Between Gifted Teenage Schoolchildren Battling Depression & The Mocks

(Blanchardstown, Dublin, Ireland, Monday January 23rd 2012).

The results of a 3 year Study by Irish Educationalist, Dr. Naoisé O’Reilly, reveal a number of links between the rate of depression & gifted teenagers whose talents may or may not have already been spotted in schools around the Country.

Dr. O’Reilly, Founder of The Homework Club, confirms that teenagers are falling through the cracks in the education system as their talents aren’t recognised & this makes them prone to depression.  In her experience, certain teenagers, depending on their personality types, can also fare worse.

On The Mocks front, she states, by 2nd year in school it’s already been decided whether students are good or bad at Maths for Life.  ‘What are schools setting people up for?’  The Irish Mocks exam structure requires major & urgent reform as the current model is destroying young lives.  Afterall, you can do nothing in life with foundation maths.

There are also disgraceful situations where gifted teenagers who slip up on small stuff in class are branded as ‘slow’ by teachers.

Introduction

Welcome to the Purple Learning Project.

The aim of the Purple Learning Project Foundation is to create a legacy of the methods which Dr Naoisé O’Reilly has developed since 2009.

The methods in learning and personality theory have been developed while working with people of a variety of ages, backgrounds, and cultures. The methods have been applied to the education, business and sporting environments. The ages are in the spectrum of 4 to 70's. The methods include: Purple Profiling, Purple Processing Scales, The Periodic Table of the Development of Results, Forget Phonics Reading Method, Purple Pre-School Success and so on...

There has always been a clear distinction for Dr Naosié in working with people who currently need help within the system and leaving behind something of integrity for the future generations.
