Ruane to “engage in debate” on teaching Irish

The education minister Catriona Ruane was at the Irish Medium Education Convention on Monday and announced that she was ?currently considering a review of Irish medium education in the North. This review will play an important part in ensuring that Irish medium education is fully and appropriately supported as an integral part of the education system in all schools; primary, post-primary, English and Irish medium. I will be making the recommendations of the report public in the future and look forward to using it as the starting point for an engaging debate on this important issue.” Jim Allister has already “engaged in debate” on this issue. I suspect the other unionist parties may well have a relatively similar view of the “debate.”
