Slovak Republic: Still separate, still unequal : Violations of the right to education of Romani children in Slovakia

This report shows that Romani children in Slovakia continue to be largely segregated in practice in inferior education. Underlying causes of violations of the access to the right to education of Romani children have not been effectively and consistently tackled. Amnesty International is calling on the government of Slovakia to commit to tackling segregation. Romani children should not be placed in special or segregated schools or classes simply because they are Roma or because they are socially disadvantaged.
