Cerasela Bănică, president of CADO – Center for Advocacy and Human Rights had an interview on ethnic and racial inclusion in Romania, during Conviețuiri, at TVR 1, on 7 of July, this year. She was bringing into discussion the widest monitoring action of school segregation, which takes place at the level of all schools in 11 counties, covering 4 criteria: ethnicity, disability, school performance or socio-economic situation, within the project School For All Children! -II. After this monitoring, the collected data will be transmitted to the Ministry of Education and together we will try to identify solutions. The state has an obligation to ensure equal rights for every citizen, including those who are part of an ethnic community.
“Since the first case of school segregation reported in 2003 by Romani Criss, the phenomenon still persists. Long-term human and financial resources are needed to effectively combat segregation through desegregation measures. Desegregation plans in recent years have been, but only on paper. International data show that children who are segregated do not have access to quality education. Quality educational services can never be provided in those segregated schools or classrooms if racial discrimination is not addressed first. ”
“Working together for an inclusive Europe!”
