  • 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.
