    Education and the Roma Community

    • Causes:

      • A large number of families fails to give the same importance to schooling.

      • Expectations: “Knowing how to read and write is quite enough”.

      • Educational is basically the responsibility of the family.

      • They feel that the school will fail to teach their children Roma values.

      • The school represents a cultural majority and a type of society that makes it difficult for ethnic minorities.
