Education blog seeks new debate

A new blog seeking to create debate around the future of education in Northern Ireland has been created. As well as listing the grammar schools preparing to set their own exams it has a poll on whether Education Minister Caitríona Ruane should resign. I wonder if Ms Ruane has checked in and voted yet?

It seems like a genuine attempt to further debate on the matter, which is welcome. My one reservation would be that whilst claiming to be non partisan its set up is rather anti-Ruane in nature. Nothing wrong in that, of course, but whether that constitutes 'non-partisan' well Esoterica will reserve judgement.

Some of course would argue that the current deadlock is the DUP's fault and not SF's.

Let's hope, for sake of future generations, our politicians can sort out something.
