State support for Romany high school students dwindled in 2013

The state support for Romany students at Czech secondary schools last year reached 5.6 million crowns, the news agency ČTK said on Monday citing the government’s report on the state of minorities in the country. In 2012, the support amounted to nearly 8 million crowns. Around 740 disadvantaged students received the support last year in the form of contributions for travel expenses, lunches and school equipment.
