I think it is clear that my idea was a bit flaky. I will keep some parts but alter them also. This is not necessarily an Irish school. Perhaps a US-American one.

-

Private. Comprises Junior infants until Postdoctorate research. Racial discrimination favouring Germanic persons at one hundred per cent and that does not include Ashkenazim.

Junior Infants, Senior Infants & part of Primary school - Learning to read and write in English with examination.

rest of Primary school - Learning to read Homeric with the occasional book from the Iliad. Readings of Mister Philip Sidney, Mister Thomas Jefferson, Mister Ralph Waldo Emerson, Mister Walt Whitman and Miss Emily Dickinson at an extremely slow pace and with constant guidance from teachers. Introductory classes to Greek and US history.

First through Sixth year - Abolition of the Junior Certificate Examination and replacement of the Leaving Certificate Examination with continuous assessment. Continued Homeric language classes as well as readings of the rest of the Iliad and Odyssey, Hesiod, Rhodius and Nonnos. Various optional language, poetry, philosophy, theology and history modules to choose from related to Greece, the US, Provence, Italy, England, Germany, Israel and China id est Attic, Provençal, Sicilian, Old English, Mittelhochdeutsch, the languages of the Bible and Mandarin id est the preSocratics, Bertrans de Born, Dante, Chaucer, Wolfram von Eschenbach, the Bible et alii.
