Reflections on Educational Policies for Spanish Gypsies
Salinas, Jesus
European Education, v39 n1 p32-49 Spr 2007
In Spain, the existence of a central government and the governments of 17 autonomous communities, each with its own authority and control over educational matters, results in variation and inequality in educational policies toward Gypsies. The conservative or progressive tendencies of political parties in office and their influence on education as well as the changes every four years in central and autonomous governments all contribute to instability in educational policy. In this article, the author reflects on the educational policies for Gypsies implemented in Spain. He provides a brief history of the Gypsies in Spain, discusses educational legislation concerning educational policies specifically designed for Gypsies, and presents multiple perspectives on the schooling of Gypsies.
