Lunn says NICIE survey shows the demand is there for more integrated education

Alliance Education spokesperson Trevor Lunn MLA has welcomed a survey carried out by NICIE in which two thirds of respondents supported increasing the number of integrated school places in Belfast from 4% to 33%.

Trevor Lunn said: “This poll confirms once again the opinion expressed by parents, that if the integrated option was more widely available, they would choose that option for their children.

“There is a real danger that the current push for a ‘shared education’ system will be used as an excuse not to promote the real solution – a system of integrated schools, encouraged and facilitated by the Education Department, sufficient to meet parental demand.”
