Jade Lydon

Jade Lydon was born in the United Kingdom and moved to Ireland in 1998. She did her BA (Hons) in Criminal Justice Studies in Waterford Institute of Technology and her MA in Gender, Globalisation and Rights in National University of Ireland Galway. Jade is researching ‘Teacher Trainers’ Opinions on Cultural Inclusivity Within Irish Schools’. The research looks at whether Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) should be included within the Relationships and Sexuality Education (RSE) module and if the Development Education and Intercultural Education is adequate. The research is a small-scale study with the potential to be broadened to include opinions of primary and secondary teachers as well as parents from a migrant and white Irish background.
