No Eleventh Hour Reprieve for the 11 Plus – O’Dowd

5 October, 2009 - by John O'Dowd


Sinn Féin Education spokesperson John O’Dowd has said that the motion before the Assembly from the UUP on academic selection is ‘an old agenda in an new era’.

Speaking from the Assembly today John O’Dowd said;

“The Ulster Unionists, should listen to their Conservative masters and the rest of the political parties in these Islands and realise Academic selection is unnecessary, outdated and garners no support outside the Unionist camp.

Sinn Féin, under the stewardship of Education Minister Caitríona Ruane, is leading the way in ensuring equality for all of our children; the Eleven plus is gone!

Continued attempts by the UUP as well as the editorial teams of pro-selection newspapers, will not derail us from securing a modern education system that delivers for all children.” CRÍOCH
