No Public Confidence in Sinn Fein to Fix Education

26 September 2011

Statement by TUV leader and North Antrim MLA Jim Allister:

“John O’Dowd’s statement in the Assembly today will have inspired no confidence within the community. It is important to remember that Sinn Fein/IRA have been the only party to hold the Education portfolio this century. If they were capable of improving the quality of our schools surely they would have already done so!

“It is important to remember that throughout Sinn Fein’s time in holding the education brief there has been a very noticeable imbalance in the number of Controlled schools which have closed when compared to the Maintained sector.

“Parents across the Province will judge Sinn Fein on their record – one which has brought uncertainty and tremendous anxiety  to numerous families when it comes to post-primary transfer.”
