The Way Forward

We believe that Integrated Education represents a positive choice for the future of our country. In 32 years the number of children educated in Integrated schools has grown from 28 pupils in Lagan in 1981 to nearly 22,000 today. All of this has been brought about by parents who wanted a different choice of education for their children.

A recent Millward Brown survey found that 83% of parents in Belfast believe that integrated education is a vital part of building a shared future in Northern Ireland. 72% of parents believe that funding for integrated education should be prioritised, with enough places available for those who wish to send their children to an integrated school.
