The School Report

1 x 60' - BBC ONE NI (2009)


The abolition of the 11-plus has led to bitterly divided opinion across Northern Ireland on the education of our children. In this documentary two experts with strong and opposing views on academic selection -Chris Woodhead, the former Chief Inspector of Schools, and Fiona Millar, the outspoken education campaigner - visit Northern Ireland for a lively and informative journey. They meet parents, teachers and pupils to assess how we can best educate our children.

The documentary also follows four children from local schools as they sit the last ever 11-plus exam and wait anxiously for their results.
