School segregation in Ostrava
The ERRC is supporting families of children to challenge school segregation in court. Despite Roma making up a minority in the school’s catchment area, virtually all of the pupils in school concerned are Roma. The school created a separate “annex” building in which non-Roma pupils are educated.
Discrimination in enrolment in Ostrava
The ERRC is supporting Romani children and their families to make a discrimination claim against a school which refused to enrol them. The civil claim follows a successful administrative complaint which resulted in the decision not to enrol the children being quashed.
