Integrated education an inevitability

I WAS reduced to near-despair on reading the article by the Most Rev Dr Donal McKeown (Comment, June 26), arguing against integrated education as the way forward in Northern Ireland.

Flying in the face of poll after poll, he stages a rearguard action to defend the existing system and accuses those who support integration of being "dogmatists".

While people like Donal McKeown may slow down progress towards integrated education, they will not be able to thwart forever the clear public preference that our children learn together for the betterment of our society as a whole.

It is, indeed, time to stand up to the vested interests in this area and to push ahead with implementing integrated education.
