Roma children at schools in Hungary

A few days ago, opposition leader Viktor Orban said in a speech that he understood parents who didn't want to send their children to schools attended by Roma children. Laszlo Kallai, a civil rights activist for the Roma, protests in an open letter to Orban: "If the children of poor families or Roma families are forced to attend separate classes, they will receive a lower standard of education. Segregated schools have lower standards regardless of whether it's because of skin colour or their parents' social background that the children are separated from the rest of the children. Children in segregated schools have little opportunity to acquire the knowledge that will enable them to survive in a competitive society. They end up without jobs and become dependent on social welfare."
