Roma-related issues and questions have recently become a relatively frequent mat- ter of political and media attention both in Slovakia and in the international con- text. It is becoming apparent yet again that this area represents one of the sore points shared by EU member states which they are unable to deal with in an e ec- tive and just way that would fall within the liberal-democratic tradition. is study aims to contribute to this eld and help to form social, political and educational conditions that would allow for successful integration of Roma students from so- cially disadvantaged environment into the regular education process.However, grasping of inclusion and inclusive education necessarily means that a new way of thinking needs to be enforced, too. e introduction of inclusive education is a long-term process which requires enormous e ort and nancial sup- port from the state.
On October 30, 2012, Regional Court in Prešov ruled that by placing the Roma students in separate classes, the Elementary School in Šarišské Michaľany infring- es the equal treatment principle stipulated by the Anti-discrimination Act and by the School Act. e court also ruled that the forming of Roma classes was detri- mental to human dignity and ordered the school to change the education conditions for Roma students since the beginning of the following school year (2013/2014).

We bring to you the interesting issue in the Roma TV magazine in RTVS. The First reportage is devoted to the problem of segregation of Roma children in Slovak schools. The topic expresses the director of eduRoma, Vlado Rafael, the public guardian of rights Jana Dubovcová and the main school inspector Viera Kalmárová. The view on the solution of the problem explains also the Ministry of education.
