Abstract

In both the Republic of Ireland (RoI) and Northern Ireland (NI) schools are exempt from equality legislation when employing teachers. Populations on both sides of the border have, however, become more religiously diverse and there has been a significant rise in the number of people with no religious belief. This report investigates the extent to which religion or belief is a factor in the appointment and promotion of non-religious teachers in Post-Primary schools with a religious ethos. It also seeks to understand the lived experiences of non-religious teachers in relation to how they experience and manage religious expectations regarding appointments and promotions.
