Roma need help from politics

With an eye to tomorrow's International Day of the Roma, the liberal daily Sme criticises the poor education of the Slovakian Roma and calls for a remedy from politics: "Forty percent of Roma children don't finish school. At special schools, the chances of qualifying for a career are practically zero. But the Roma who don't find work also don't pay taxes and live on welfare instead. Studies show that the integration of the Roma could lead to a ten percent annual rise in GDP. ... It's high time politicians supported those organisations that are committed to the integration of the Roma, and especially their education. This is a moral and legal duty, and economically necessary as well."
