I WOULD like to answer the question proposed by J McClean (Write Back, April 11): did Caitriona Ruane make moves to address the dual school system?
The answer is yes as the Department of Education, under Ms Ruane, supported and promoted integrated education and the rights of parents to choose that system of education .
She also worked closely with her counterpart in the south for integration and co-operation.
