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



Abstract:

The education system in the Czech Republic struggles with a long-term lack of continuous and coherent planning, unstable governments, and is beholden to a strong lobby of various interest groups. In 2008 the Ministry of Education prepared a National Action Plan for Inclusive Education. This action plan introduced a concept of inclusive education as a way of eliminating the continuing segregation of Roma students. However, there has been no support from the current government for the implementation of the action plan. In reality, available data show continuing trend of high rate of failure and dropping-out of Roma students in secondary education. The presentation will describe the work of the OSF Prague in promoting equal access to education for members of all minority groups in the CR, especially the Roma minority. Various strategies combining advocacy activities and an on-going support to the adoption and implementation of inclusive education will be discussed. The most recent project focuses on piloting implementation of inclusive education in four regions, and developing a bottom up support for the implementation of inclusive education. The presentation will describe barriers and opportunities to introduction of inclusive education in the Czech school system. It will discuss approaches to overcome political and educational lobbies and to fight against stereotypes and prejudices towards the Roma minority in the Czech Republic.
