The Irish News coverage on employment of Catholic teaching graduates tells only part of the story. Perhaps the nationalist newspaper has difficulty admitting where many of the new graduates have found employment. They need look no further than England and the independent sector. A phone call to Fettes (Tony Blair’s old school) would be a good place to start. It is noticable that the Irish News fail to make a link between the Catholic Churches abandonment of academic selection and the reduction in opportunity for employment in Catholic schools in Northern Ireland. Explanations on a postcard please to Cardinal Brady.
