Roundtable: Reducing National Inequalities and Promoting Social Inclusion
The roundtable discussion will focus on the role education plays in Roma integration.
The roundtable will see the participation of representatives from the National Focal Point, the Norwegian Royal Embassy in Bratislava, the National Slovak Institute for Educations, Slovak secondary schools, and the Council of Europe.
Among topics presented at the roundtable are the opportunities and challenges related to teaching Romani language in mixed schools with Roma children, as well as the importance of informal education, such as hobby groups and out-of-school activities, as a tool of support for socially disadvantaged students in their transition to high schools and their successful completion of higher secondary education.
The roundtable is organised by the Government Office of the Slovak Republic which is the operator of the Slovak 'Local and Regional Initiatives to Reduce National Inequalities and to Promote Social Inclusion' programme under the EEA Grants.
