Why This Pack?
Average educational outcomes for Roma learners fall below outcomes for most other identifiable groups in education across Europe. Reasons for this are complex and multiple. The consequences of educational under-achievement damage the life chances of many Roma citizens permanently and increase economic and social segregation wherever Roma groups live. Inequalities reproduced from one generation to the next steadily erode social cohesion and threaten economic stability. Initiatives to improve education for Roma learners have been attempted over many years. We believe that an important starting point for all such work is awareness raising and skill development for front-line workers. We offer these materials to support anyone taking on this work.
Who Are These Materials For?
- Anyone who works to support education for communities that include Roma residents.
- Anyone who wishes to improve their skills knowledge and awareness related to Roma exclusion, inclusion, discrimination, participation and equitable treatment.
- Anyone wishing to facilitate training of front-line staff or development and improvement of learning institutions
- Anyone administering education policy, leading or supporting schools
