Background Information

The latest Peace Monitoring Report gave us a stark reminder of the impact of the under performance of poorer Protestant boys in education. Over 80% of boys in this category fail to get five good GCSEs.  This has been known for some time and indeed was analysed in depth in the Purvis Report of 2011.  However the response has been at best piecemeal and there are strong suggestions that the situation is getting worse instead of better.  This seminar will examine the root causes and more importantly what government, the education system and the wider community can do to respond to this critical issue.
