State schools not Protestant

Three integrated schools consistently failed to meet their target for a religious balance of pupils (News, May 13).

Has the time not come to be honest? We are told there are three types of school in Northern Ireland: Catholic Controlled, Integrated and State.

There should only be two: the Integrated is not required because the State schools are not Protestant schools; they are for pupils of all religions be they Islamic, Jewish or Protestant and there are Roman Catholics who attend these. Why should these Integrated schools be treated differently? They should be integrated into the State system.
