Department must work to replace Education chief as soon as possible – Sheehan 

Sinn Féin MLA Pat Sheehan has said the Department of Education must work to quickly fill the post of Chief Executive of the Education Authority.

The party’s education spokesperson said:

“In light of the resignation of the Education Authority’s Chief Executive Sara Long today, the Department of Education must work to fill the vacancy as soon as possible.

“Giving the existing staffing gaps within the Education Authority, and the fact there’s no minister in place as a result of the DUP’s blockade of the Executive, it is crucial there is leadership in place to guide them through the challenges ahead and deliver for children and young people.” CRÍOCH/ENDS
