Independent Review of Education Requires an Independent Chair


The Integrated Education Fund welcomes the Education Minister’s announcement of the recruitment process for the Chair of the Independent Review of Education.

We believe this independent review presents a once in a lifetime opportunity to bring change to our broken, anachronistic system, our children, parents and teachers deserve it.

Independent Review of Education Requires an Independent ChairThe next crucially important step in this process of change has to be the appointment of an independent Chair.

Education in Northern Ireland has so many opposing and sectional interests at play that a truly independent chair is needed to both provide confidence in the process and ensure those sectional interests do not override common sense conclusions about ending the abnormal system of segregation.
