THE DEPUTY Prime Minister in charge of human rights and minorities, Dušan Čaplovič, said he intends to focus on education when dealing with problems faced by the country's Roma minority, the TASR newswire wrote.
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 settlements 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 challenges experienced by the Roma in society from now to 2015.
