Hazzard calls on SDLP to clarify position on parental choice
Sinn Fein education spokesperson Chris Hazzard has called on the SDLP to state explicitly whether they support parental choice in education.
Mr Hazzard said;
"Sinn Fein have a long history of supporting shared and integrated education.
"We also recognise parental choice as the corner stone of our education system.
"Colum Eastwood needs to clarify his party position on parental choice to parents, pupils and educators, as they appear to be in disarray.
"On one hand they make the ridiculous claim that shared education campuses are institutionalising sectarianism while on the other hand they are rushing to align themselves with faith schools.
"They are clearly talking out of both sides of their mouth on this isssue and trying to ride two horses for electoral reasons."
