Study: Roma represent 28 percent of pupils at schools for children with learning difficulties

Children from the Roma minority represent 28 percent of the pupils at schools for those with learning difficulties, according to a survey carried out for the national school inspectors’ body. Deputy Education Minister Jindřich Fryč presented the results of the study at an international conference about Romany education in Prague on Thursday. Responding to the figures, the minister for human rights, Jiří Dienstbier, told the Czech News Agency that the Czech Republic was failing when it came to inclusive education.
