Abstract

Although this book is about the role of schooling in a divided society like Northern Ireland, it is rooted in a more generic issue pertaining to countries which are fractured. This prompts the question whether fissures based on ethnicity or religion should result in ‘separate’ schooling or whether, notwithstanding such divisions, children of different backgrounds should be schooled together? Against this context, Northern Ireland offers an interesting study of such dilemmas as, leaving behind its troubled past, it moves towards a ‘shared future’, free of conflict and involving the full and equal participation of both the Protestant and Catholic communities.
