Support the Integrated Education Bill

Support the Integrated Education Bill

Ensure any new schools built in Northern Ireland are integrated, and keep the Department for Education accountable for promoting integrated education.

Why is this important?

Only 7.5% of schools here are integrated schools - bringing together children from all backgrounds - Catholic, Protestant and other. All integrated schools here have been fought for and demanded by parents. But this bill could really change things. It would ensure that every new school opened in Northern Ireland from now on is integrated. And it would strengthen the Department for Education's legal duty, requiring the Minister to be held to account for their performance in promoting integrated education.

But some parties want to water the bill down. If we flood the consultation with responses, we can make sure that doesn't happen.
