Ministry official: compulsory kindergarten at five could help Roma children|
Meanwhile, an adviser to the education minister said on Friday after a
discussion about the education of Romanies that some children might be
legally required to go to kindergarten from the age of five, a year
earlier than children normally start school in the Czech Republic.
Martin Profant said the aim of the plan was to make Romany children
better prepared for elementary school, and therefore less likely to end
up in schools for children with learning difficulties.
