Education Blog: Transfer chaos petition off to flying start

By Kathryn Torney

Published 28/09/2009

We're really delighted with reaction to the launch of our petition.

One hundred signatures in just half an hour at the first school we took it to was a great start. We also have strong backing from four of the main political parties - with just Sinn Fein reluctant to sit down and sort the situation out.

Emails of support have been flooding in - I have to print out hundreds at a time.

We did a front page 'report card' on the performance of the politicians after just one day.

Trevor Lunn came top of the class - much to the annoyance of the others who were most offended at not being awarded a gold star!

Maybe a reward chart for politicians - similar to one used in many homes for misbehaving children - is something which should be considered by the Assembly....
