Last December The Parental Alliance for Choice in Education published an article highlighting the costs of the Education And Skills Authority (ESA). https://paceni.wordpress.com/2009/12/10/esa-the-real-costs/

On Saturday November 6th, 2010 the Irish News ran the front page headline;

£2 million waste of schools money on ESA staff.

Two million pounds  is a mere  fraction of the waste incurred by this stealthy body. No use by Simon Doyle, the Irish News Education Correspondent of the term “double-jobber” to describe Gavin Boyd the ESAIT chief executive and chief executive of the problem ridden exams board, CCEA.

 Frank Bunting northern secretary of the teachers union INTO rushed in to create a heirarchy of losers.

” Yes  it’s a waste of money but the bigger waste of money is that ESA has not yet been established…Everyone is a loser.”

Perhaps Frank has forgotten his script to the Stormont Education Committee from March 25, 2009 when he said;

in the interests of efficiency, establishing the ESA is basically a dream come true.”

Frank Bunting may need some remedial numeracy training and careful teaching of accounting principles.
