Shaping the Right to Education for Roma Children: A Case Study of Present Practices in Ghent, Belgium
Hemelsoet, Elias
Intercultural Education, v26 n2 p94-105 2015
Western European cities are increasingly confronted with Roma immigrants. Societal changes associated with this phenomenon create new challenges for schools. Using a case study, this article sheds light on present practices that shape the right to education for Roma children. Three principal success factors are distinguished: boundary-blurring practices, a lifeworld-oriented approach and commitment. Finally, the relation between promising practices and a rights-based approach to educational justice is discussed.
