Bradley: Our Children Cannot Be Left At The Mercy Of Traffic

DUP MLA Maurice Bradley has described a leaked Education Authority proposal to remove crossing patrols from outside our schools as ‘totally unacceptable’.

“While undoubtedly the Education Authority and the Department have to explore every option to live within budget, this idea cannot be regarded as a serious suggestion,” said Bradley.

“The safety of our children cannot be underestimated.  Leaving our children to the mercy of traffic, especially in the dark mornings is totally incomprehensible.

“The safety of our children is of paramount importance, this bizarre suggestion highlights the pressure on our education system, and the need for strategic changes and reform which need commitment on an Executive wide basis, which again highlights the damage being done by a single party putting their narrow interests ahead of proper decision making and the restoration of government.”

The MLA, who sits on the DUP’s education policy committee concluded: “I am pleased that the EA has given an assurance that school crossing patrols will be in operation when children across Northern Ireland return to school in the coming days.”
