The opposition TOP 09 party has produced a plan under which children from the Roma minority would be partly taught in the Romany language at elementary schools. Czech Radio reported that other parties broadly backed the idea, though some have expressed reservations over the creation of separate Romany classes. TOP 09 say the removal of the language barrier that some Roma children encounter when they start school would later result in lower numbers ending up at schools for those with learning difficulties. The party want to discuss the idea with stakeholders, while it will be debated by the lower house’s Education Committee next month.
