The CAO offers caused disappointment for even the top-scoring leaving cert students yesterday. Grade inflation and an increase in applications pushed more courses than ever above the 600 point mark, with random selection seeing many deserving students miss out.  To discuss this further we were joined on the show this morning by  Aodhan O’Riordan, Labour TD and Spokesperson on Education and John Walshe, Former Advisor to Education Minister Ruairi Quinn.
