Mr Poots tells the Education Committee chairman :
As chairman of the Education Committee you should reflect the wider educational opinion – you have not done so to date.”
Perhaps Stanley was asleep or otherwise engaged when the results of the Household Survey were published. Over 60% of parents and teachers wanted to see academic selection retained.
Mr Poots was a signator to an anti-selection petition published just prior to last year’s 11-plus tests. His name is tuckedin just close to Professor Tony Gallagher’s signature. You will recall that Gallagher was paid by the DENI for his research on the Effects of the Selective System of Education in Northern Ireland. No bias there then.
