Proposals for Development of Plan of Measures for Solving the Problem of Segregation in the Primary School “Vuk Karadzic” Prepared

Upon the opinion of the Commissioner for Protection of Equality issued on the basis of the complaint filed by Praxis against the Nis City Administration – Administration for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport and the Primary School “Vuk Karadzic” from Nis for segregation and discrimination of Roma children, the representatives of the Administration for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport delivered the Proposal for Development of Plan of Measures for Solving the Problem in the Primary School “Vuk Karadzic” to the Commissioner for Protection of Equality.

In order to develop the aforementioned plan, the meetings were held with the representatives of relevant local and republic institutions at which it was concluded that one of the main reasons for which more than 90% of Roma children attend the Primary School “Vuk Karadzic” is demographic composition of the population in the territory of the school, bad condition of the school building and also the fact that the existing legal regulation does not provide for the possibility of so-called administrative enforcement to enrol a child in certain school.

The proposed measures envisage undertaking a number of activities that would be directed at investing in the school building and procuring the contemporary equipment, raising the level of knowledge acquired in preschools and motivating the parents to support the education of children, as well as the activities on improving the curriculum in the Primary School “Vuk Karadzic”.

Even though solving of this problem requires activities that need to be taken continuously and at long run, it is necessary to carry out the proposed measures as efficiently as possible so that the first results would be soon seen and thus provide impetus for solving these problems in the following period.
