This chapter considers the impact Tuairim made on the debate on the education system and its views on industrial schools as well as its attempts to retain UCD in Dublin city centre and to foster good relations between that college and Trinity College Dublin. It argues that the society's hopes for moves towards equality of opportunity and increased co-operation provoked a strong reaction from vested interests but also facilitated increased activity by the state. While the political and religious establishments rejected the society's proposals for the third-level sector, Tuairim's ideas encouraged the government to implement much-needed reforms in education and in relation to the institutional care of children and to tackle powerful interests, such as the Catholic Church.
