Segregation is holding our children back

On Monday, an article written by Jon Yates appeared in Schools Week, entitled: “Segregation is holding our children back”.

Jon takes issue with the New Schools Network’s recent suggestions that Faith Schools should be allowed to select 100% of their pupils by faith. (Previous reforms introduced by Michael Gove limited the ability of academies and free schools to select any more than 50% of their intake on the basis of faith).

Jon points to the Northern Ireland’s shared education model as a good example of integrated education. He also looks forward to the Casey review and sets out a few hopes around schools policy.
