Czech Govt Agency for Social Inclusion in Roma Localities conference on Education Together - Law, Pedagogy, Strategy & Practice

Prague, 11.5.2012 18:57, (ROMEA)

On Tuesday, 15 May, the Czech Government Agency for Social Inclusion in Roma Localities and the Representation of the European Commission in the Czech Republic will hold a conference in Prague on the options for integrating inclusive education into the Czech education system. The conference, entitled "Education Together - Law, Pedagogy, Strategy and Practice" ("Společné vzdělávání - právo, pedagogika, strategie a praxe") aims to present information about various aspects of what is termed common or inclusive education.

If inclusive education elements were to be more intensively integrated into the Czech education system, it would help bring an end to the inter-generational reproduction of social exclusion in the country. Moreover, by signing many international documents, the Czech Republic has legally obligated itself to do this.

The conference will take place on Tuesday, 15 May 2012 from 9:00 to 17:00 at Europe House (Evropský dům - Jungmannova 24, Praha 1). It is being held under the kind auspices of Czech Prime Minister Petr Nečas and Czech Government Human Rights Commissioner Monika Šimůnková as part of "Europe Days" in the Czech Republic.

Several Czech and foreign experts on education will present at the conference. For example, Jana Straková of the Institute for Research and Development in Education of the Pedagogical Faculty at Charles University in Prague will discuss "Ensuring effectiveness and fairness in the Czech education system"; Aurelio Cecilio of the European Commission's DG for Employment, Social Affairs and Social Inclusion will present "European and national strategies for common education"; and Susanna Rajala of the Finnish National Council for Education will describe in detail "Primary education for Romani pupils in Finland".
