McGuinness - 11 + confusion must end

14 October, 2003


Former Education Minister Martin McGuinness has expressed deep concern at the spreading of confusion over when the 11+ transfer test will be finally abolished.

Mr McGuinness said:

"The decision that the final year group to sit the 11 + transfer test would take it in November 2004 was taken over twelve months ago.

"Children, parents and teachers need to know that this decision target will be adhered to and that increasing speculation and confusion is ended.

"The present confusion is being used by those opposed to change within the educational system." ENDS
