31 AGITATION As the first decade of the new century drew to a close the coincidence of several factors seemed to suggest that some readjustment of the intermediate educational status quo was expedient if not inevitable. 32 The establishment of the National University also removed a recurring problem from the Irish political scene and left the chief secretary's hands free to grapple with the thorny issue of intermediate education reform. That Birrell would act on the question was widely believed and his determination in establishing the permanent inspectorate was a cause for optimism among the advocates of reform.

35 The Nationalist members were generally more ambivalent on the question of teachers' rights with the great exception of Thomas O'Donnell (Kerry West) who spoke out consistently on their behalf and was largely responsible for keeping the issue before the public eye. John Dillon occasionally harnessed his eloquence to the cause but Redmond generally remained silent on the question, in keeping with his policy of avoiding public controversy with the church. An improvement in the position of Irish secondary education could have been affected by a simple imperial grant to the Intermediate Board increasing the funds at its disposal as results fees and prizes.

10 The association was particularly critical of the suggestion that boarding arrangements be examined and that evidence of degrees and diplomas be required of Catholic teachers. 11 The protest was not in vain and the Intermediate Board soon yielded on the question of inspection of the residential and domestic parts of boarding schools, leaving it to the discretion of the individual headmaster. But it proposed to publish a list of all schools that agreed to such inspection and received good reports.
