While Stanley Poots is fronting yet another campaign against academic selection to post-primary schools he remains quiet over his role with the Education and Skills Authority.

Mr Poots was appointed to Gavin Boyd’s ESA Working Group for Children’s Services. 

The Terms of Reference can be found here.


Nowhere does it state that Mr Poots was to evangelise for Gavin Boyd’s anti-selection manifesto.

Mr Poots gave an interview withe local media in which he stated:

“All schools – primary, secondary and grammar – agreed that the 11-plus test was flawed and should be abolished”

Parents can only speculate as to when Mr Poots came by his now publicly expressed views.

So whose frustration are you expressing Stanley? It wouldn’t be Gavin’s would it?
