New man at the helm of Department of Education and Children talks to Paul Speller

In the latest edition of the Manx Advertiser, the new chief executive of the Department of Education and Children talks to Paul Speller about the job ahead.

Professor Ronald Barr (pictured, below) speaks about the difficulties faced but also the problems caused by meddling politicians in the UK.

Elsewhere, keeping up the education theme in the publication, Paul outlines his theory on why primary school children are better than MHKs.
