REF Executive Director Writes about the Segregation of Roma in Education in Hungary

In an opinion article for Brussels' daily New Europe, REF Executive Director Nadir Redzepi writes about the the state of Roma education in Hungary. He writes, "[...] REF is ready and willing to work alongside the authorities. Providing Roma children a proper education within an integrated state system would not be expensive. It could be achieved at an additional cost of about one Euro per child a day when church-run boarding schools cost up to €25,000 a year for each student. A more sensitive curriculum would provide positive narratives of Roma who are currently absent from textbooks. The objective should be to fulfill the intellectual potential of Roma children and to furnish them with the skills they need to contribute to Hungarian society."
