A choice for the future

We believe that Integrated Education represents a positive choice for the future of our country. In 30 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 Ipsos MORI poll in 2011 showed that of those people surveyed

  • 91% feel that integrated education is important in promoting a shared and better future in Northern Ireland
  • 91% said that integrated education is important in promoting  respect and understanding
  • 89% feel that integrated education is important to peace & reconciliation
