From 11+ into the void…

The sheer lack of detail is one of the most frustrating aspects of any policy discussion on education. But over at the Daily Telegraph Jenny McCartney warns that the frightening thing about the abolition of the 11+ is not its going but the fact that there is nothing concrete in Catriona Ruane’s proposals to take its place.

Update: Bob Wilson explains how he believes the whole thing is a ‘policy free’ attempt to wind up unionists over at the Conservatives NI site.
