The rapid expansion of junior secondary education has had several negative consequences. One of them has become a major problem today that of the future of the junior secondary leavers who cannot get access to senior secondary school. Several education reports, including the latest National Commission on Education, have examined possibilities for the junior secondary leave"" including expansion of the senior secondary programme and some form of vocational training. The preparation of children/or the 'world of work', by makingchanges to the curriculum, would also appear to be a step in the right direction. However, such efforts will be fruitless unless the 'world of work' is prepared to absorb the junior certificate leavers. In other words, the plight of the junior certificate Leaver is not something which the education system alone can solve-job creation is an essential strategy in the search for a solution.
