Promoting multicultural education and school desegregation in Slovakia

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This presentation will explore the development of a conceptual framework of multicultural education in Slovakia and describe strategies of how it was introduced into national curriculum. Challenges in implementing new elements of national curriculum in schools will be discussed. The education reform launched by a previous government in Slovakia had a number of drawbacks and suffered significantly from a lack of wider participation of teachers, parents, civil society organizations and other stakeholders. The presentation will talk about results of a qualitative survey on attitudes of students towards minorities in Slovakia and how it was used as a basis for a public discussion. The second part of the presentation will describe recent work of the OSF Slovakia on developing a conceptual framework on school (de)segregation. The new School Law adopted in 2008 for the first time clearly states that segregation in education is prohibited. However, the law does not further elaborate or define what segregation means, how it performs in school practice, how it can be measured etc. Vague terminology in legislation and policies means there is limited impact on removing de-facto school segregation. The presentation will describe how the OSF Slovakia responded to these gaps. It will highlight key components of the (de)segregation initiative, including a theoretical study, public discussion, development of policy recommendations on desegregation and advocacy work on integration in education.
