The project

 The project arises from the need to improve the educational level and consequently life condition of the Roma, aiming to address measures to promote and boost Roma students’ development as an entry point for fostering the sustained social inclusion of Roma students in the participating nations. Above all, involving together Roma students and parents representatives, regional and local authorities, stakeholders and NGOs the project aims to focus on how we can together create appropriate policies, enforce their implementation and monitor their progress.

The project will explore the situation of Roma students and their parents inclusion in the consortium’s nations, the problems with which they face: it will outline the policies implemented at national and EU level; it will highlight how to take effective measures to ensure equal treatment and full access for Roma boys and girls to quality and mainstream education and it will create and test an inclusive and tailor-made model about teaching and learning methods, including learning support for struggling learners and measures to fight illiteracy. The model will increase the access to, and quality of, students’ education and care; reduce early school leaving throughout all levels of education, including at secondary level and vocational training; consider the needs of individual pupils and address those accordingly, in close cooperation with their families; encourage greater parental involvement.
