Czech expert says Krásná Lípa school committed segregation and probably discrimination as well
Klára Laurenčíková, an expert on inclusive education, has commented on the results of an investigation by the Czech School Inspection into complaints of segregation at a primary school in Krásná Lípa on which news server Romea.cz has been reporting. She believes that by creating a "Romani class", the school has committed segregation at the very least and may have also committed discrimination.
The conclusions drawn by some other Czech media outlets that the school has not been and is not discriminating border on disinformation, according to Laurenčíková. The inspection report presents the information that Romani children were placed separately into an isolated classroom of their own and did not get sufficient support for their education even though the principal of the school, at the time she decided to set up their class, defended her decision by saying she wanted to provide extremely increased aid and support to those children.
