Abstract

Education represents a major challenge and it plays a key role in the social inclusion for the Roma and to their financial background also. The Roma children school attendance level is very law and what they learn from school is not equal to the other children. Poverty, illiteracy and insufficient education lead to a vicious surrounding which sets this community in front of difficulties and marginalisation. According to the law, all people are equal as to the right to education. As a complex approach to equal teaching and studying, multicultural education leads the way to the inclusion of this community within the educational system. Multicultural and inclusive practices improve the quality of the teaching and learning process, considering the chance to reduce barriers. This is a qualitative study which aims at exploring the influence of teachers’ qualification on the Roma children engagement at school. The case study is performed through the theoretical study, monitoring, interviews with directors, education specialists and parents and focus groups with parents and teachers. This study presents the teachers, parents and directors’ point of view on the importance of the qualification on social justice and the positive influence on teaching. Multicultural practices, less prejudice and education for social justice make school more effective.
