Mullan welcomes UU initiative

Sinn Féin MLA Karen Mullan has welcomed a project being undertaken by Ulster University to tackle educational underachievement among young males.

The Party’s Education Spokesperson said:

“I very much welcome this work by Ulster University.

“There is an identified gap between males and females in terms of educational qualifications and achievement, and the ‘Taking Boys Seriously’ project will inform future policy responses.

“Understanding what motivates or demotivates students can inform effective interventions and encourage participation in education.”
