New research on school composition by Professor Tony Gallagher

'Religion and Diversity in schools in Northern Ireland'
The main finding in this analysis of religion and diversity in NI schools, is that there has been little change in school composition since the signing of the Belfast/Good Friday Agreement, with the least level of change in Catholic schools. Against the stated aspiration by the Churches that schools should become more diverse, the paper concludes by considering a number of ways schools might achieve that goal.
