The Education Minister, Caitriona Ruane, continued with her ideological agenda today by refusing to reintroduce the CCEA test she commissioned and abandoned at great taxpayer expense.
The BBC story http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/northern_ireland/7934973.stm tells of Ruane’s refusal to return to a regulated system of transfer based upon attainment in numeracy and literacy.
As ever the ex-professional tennis player returned the concerns of P6 parents with a volley of snide shots including one that placed the blame on unnamed schools.
She had denied threatening schools but said a small number were “blocking change”.
So Caitriona Ruane is against unregulated tests and against regulated tests. She is also clearly against parental wishes for their children
