normal News ECRI Report urges FYROM to end the practice of sending Roma children to schools for the mentally challenged

The European Commission against Racism and Intolerance warns in a report that FYROM’s Roma population suffers from discrimination and their living conditions are “worrying”.

“Roma face difficulties with education, employment and access to health care,” the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance said in a report. “Roma women are subject to multiple discrimination and there is a high number of Roma children in the streets who do not receive adequate care.”

Furthermore the commission, which is part of the Council of Europe, urged FYROM to end the practice of sending Roma children to schools for the mentally challenged, and instead integrate them into regular schools.
