Slovakia criticised on Roma segregation

Almost two years after the European Commission launched infringement proceedings against Slovakia, Romani children continue to suffer from a discriminatory school system, Amnesty International and the European Roma Rights Centre (ERRC) said in a new report published on Wednesday. The report reveals that Romani children are being placed in segregated Roma-only schools or classes and that non-Roma parents often remove their children from schools with “too many Romani pupils”.
