In 2007, the European Court of Human Rights found that the Czech Republic had violated the right of Romani children to an education free from discrimination, by placing them in “special schools”, which offered lower quality education. Five years on, very little progress has been made to guarantee equal access to education. Amnesty International and the European Roma Rights Centre are calling on the Czech government to take all necessary measures to end this injustice in order to avoid yet another generation being trapped in the cycle of poverty and deprivation.
