The story of Catholic schools in Northern Ireland: past, present and possible future

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review

Abstract

Gallagher contends that Catholic schools remain the most significant social institution of the minority in the North, and their relationship with the State represents the most important interface between the Catholic community and the Unionist establishment. That relationship has changed significantly over time, and the author assesses the challenges to the power of the Bishops by the refusal of most Catholic grammar schools to move away from academic selection.
