Amnesty International is deeply concerned that Romani children across Slovakia remain segregated in inferior education that traps them in a cycle of poverty and marginalization. The causes of the segregation of Romani children in the Slovak educational system are complex. To ensure that all Romani children are able to realize their right to education free from discrimination, the Slovak government needs to urgently adopt strong and targeted measures to effectively monitor and enforce the prohibition of discrimination and segregation.
