    Additional Information: ISBN 978-0-7070-0297-2 . This study was funded by the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA). We would like to thank Anne Looney, John Hammond and Majella O’Shea for their help and support throughout this project. We are very grateful to Philip O’Connell, Head of the Social Research Division at the Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI) for his unfailing support and guidance. Many thanks are due to two ESRI reviewers Stephanie Haller and Merike Darmody for their valuable input and comments. As always, our research would not be possible without the help and generosity of students. We are particularly grateful to the 29 young people who gave up their time to participate in interviews about their experiences in the LCA. We hope that the study in some measure reflects their input.
