Academicians and NGOs slam education minister for turning a blind eye to discrimination of Romany children
30-05-2011 - Daniela Lazarova

Photo: Amnesty International Academicians and NGOs who were to assist the Education Ministry with the task of integrating Romany school children in the education process have abandoned the endeavor and are refusing to cooperate with the ministry further saying it has no intention of making any real progress on the issue. Tomas Habart from the NGO People in Need said the Education Minister Josef Dobes was not serious about tackling the problem and the group set up to deal with it was practically paralyzed as a result of personnel changes made by him. Amnesty International has issued a similar statement saying the Czech Republic is likely to be hit by sanctions for failing to take any action against discrimination of Romany children in the education system.
