New Czech research on where Roma children go after elementary school
Ivan Gabal Analysis & Consulting will hold a press conference to present its latest research, entitled "Where do Roma children go after elementary school?" The study is part of a project entitled "Sociological Analysis of the Transition of Socially Disadvantaged Roma Pupils from Elementary to Middle School." Their press release is reproduced in full below:
I would like to invite you to the press conference "Where do Roma children go after elementary school?" where we will present never-before published results of a current study of Roma children's transition from elementary to middle school. The presentation of the results of this pilot project will focus on information about which middle schools Roma pupils attend after completing elementary school in socially excluded localities, how their educational careers differ from those of their fellow pupils, and what the main barriers are to greater representation of socially disadvantaged Roma children in middle schools.
The results of the research will be presented by the sociologist Ivan Gabal and the main project researchers, Jiří Chvátal and Jan Snopek. The press conference will take place on Wednesday, 29 December 2010 at 11:00 AM at Mamma Coffee (in the Divadlo Minor passageway), Vodičková 6, Prague 1. This research is part of a a project entitled "Sociological Analysis of the Transition of Socially Disadvantaged Roma Pupils from Elementary to Middle School," supported by the Czech Education Ministry's subsidy program for the support of education in national minority languages and multicultural education.
We wish you all happy holidays and look forward to seeing you at the press conference.
