An Independent Review Panel is calling on people across the region to have their say on the future of the development of integrated education here. teacherThe Independent Panel, comprising of Colm Cavanagh, President of the NI Council for Integrated Education and Professor Margaret Topping, Queen’s University Belfast, has been asked to undertake a strategic assessment of the current arrangements for the planning and development of integrated education and make recommendations to support a more integrated education system. From today until 22nd April 2016, schools, parents, pupils and anyone else with an interest in the development of integrated education can have their say on the issue by submitting their views to the Panel. Commenting on the review, an Independent Panel Spokesperson said, “The growth of integrated education has slowed in the last decade. “The review will examine how we can support the effective planning, growth and development of integrated education in the twenty-first century. It will also look at how we develop a more integrated education system in its widest sense, which will bring together increasing numbers of Protestant and Catholic pupils within all of our schools.
