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
