The inclusion of Roma and Migrants in Schools: Training, Open Discussions and Youth Volunteering Activities (RoMigSc)
Education is crucial for successful integration. Although diversity is an opportunity to make schools more inclusive, creative and open-minded, inequality in education is the highest among Roma and migrant children. Migrants and Roma often face discrimination and xenophobia. For instance, the educational achievements of those groups are generally poor. Many students from those groups are more likely to drop out from compulsory education, leading to higher risks of social marginalisation, failure to integrate, and, ultimately, poverty. The latter has long-term adverse effects on the social development and economic growth of the host country.
The main aim of the RoMigSc project is to support the better inclusion of Roma and migrant children in education through various activities. For this reason, an e-platform was developed, offering many reading materials and videos as learning opportunities for teachers, volunteers as well as all others interested in intercultural education.
