“real debate, discussion, dialogue and indeed negotiation..”

The BBC reports deputy First Minister, Sinn Féin’s Martin McGuinness, on Inside Politics today commenting on the deadlock over post-primary education.

[Martin McGuinness] said their experienced negotiators were capable of finding a compromise. “There’s going to have to be some lateral thinking applied to all of this, there’s going to have to be some considerable brainstorming,” he said. “And I believe that we are capable if there’s a will to deal with this issue we are capable of engaging in a real debate, discussion, dialogue and indeed negotiation to take this forward.”

    I am still unclear as to who will be setting any new grammar school test, CEA or the schools themselves.

    “I will not be frustrated and I am not demoralised.” “I am going to be the education minister who brings about that change.”

    Surely the answer here is a straight Ruane – Gildernew swap. On the basis that what matters most to Sinn Fein are Westminster seats that they are not going to sit in. The talk of a DUP-UUP pact over South Belfast and Fermanagh South Tyrone means that Gildernew is under threat if SF cannot get the SDLP to give her a clear run. What would be better than sorting out Education? She has the advantage of being educated at a Comprehensive within the Dickson area.

    Ruane is already damaged goods. What more could she do wrong in Agriculture? Lots obviously.

    To be honest, on a personal level, I think Barry McElduff has a few miles left in him.

    All the main parties have people/advisers/MLA’s educated under the Dickson Plan. They are well equipped tp give advice on a compromise solution.Modified version of the Dickson Plan is the answer.It is the answer that lets Ruane off the hook and lets the DUP keep its word on defending academic selection.All primary pupils transfer at 11 to all ability junior highs with a three year empowerment curriculum. Then election by pupils to go to genuinely selective Grammars or genuinely selective Technical Colleges.All schools to pursue academic excellence.Small towns maintain a viable junior high at the centre of their community. The necessary and urgent economic rationalisation can be effected. Selection is gone.All schools can develop equal esteem. Technical Colleges train a skilled work force that has option to follow a path to University. Seems a no brainer to me.

    ……would that the Education Minister was capable of this.

    I cant help but feel that if McGuinness had remained in Education this would have been resolved by agreement

    No problem, exept the physical infrastructure for the Dickson plan is not there outside Craigavon. That would take a few years and few objections, IF we had a competent education minister. Small word IF. But big consequences.
