The research shows that:

  • 30% of parents would prefer to send children to primary school run by VEC on behalf of the State
  • 27% of parents would opt for  Church-run  primary schools  - current model
  • 24% of parents would choose multi-denominational primary  schools – eg. Educate Together  model
  • 20% of parents would opt for State-run primary  schools – no patron.
