This document is a summary of a report which highlights the lack of access of Romani children to primary education in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and Slovenia. Too often, Roma do not attend school, or do so only intermittently. With high drop-out rates, many fail to complete even primary education. Some are segregated in "Roma only" groups or classes, where they are offered only a reduced curriculum. Racist attitudes and prejudice are prevalent, even among some teachers and educators working with Romani children.
