Support Programmes for Roma Children: Do They Help or Promote Exclusion?
Intercultural Education, v16 n5 p443-452 Dec 2005
This article critically examines current education programmes for Roma primary school students in the Czech Republic and the impact of these programmes. The research described here, based on in?depth case studies, challenges popular beliefs in the "success" of Roma oriented programmes, as well as the stereotypical negative images of Roma parents. The studies also explore the dilemmas experienced by teaching staff and their views of both Roma and the majority "non?Roma" children.
