Vlado Rafael: Integrating the Roma? I Know We Can, Though the Reasons Preventing it Never Cease to Amaze Me

Vlado Rafael at visegradrevue.eu

In the summer, the V4 Revue wrote about the breakthrough decision by the Slovak courts that ordered the school in Šarišské Michaľany, a small village in the east of the country, to abolish the practice of segregating Roma from non-Roma children. A non-governmental organization eduRoma, whose mission is to help create mixed classes and introduce teaching techniques designed to make the school a better experience for all pupils, has been active in the village since February of this year. We spoke with Vlado Rafael, eduRoma director, about the multitude of little steps as well as the shocks accompanying this undertaking, about the Slovak debate on the Roma and about what’s ailing the education system.
