Čaplovič wants to focus on Roma education

The deputy prime minister in charge of human rights and minorities, Dušan Čaplovič, said on October 10 that he intended to focus on education when dealing with problems faced by the country's Roma minority.

He told the media that he would press for the placement of Roma children in boarding schools, although he admitted there could be problems getting their parents to agree.

"I want to give young people from Roma communities an opportunity to get an education and integrate themselves into the workforce, so that they won't have to experience the difficult times that their parents have had," he said.

Čaplovič said that later this month, he would unveil his strategy for tackling the current conditions experienced by the Roma in society to 2015.
