The European Court of Human Rights ECHR ruled that the failure of Greek authorities to integrate Roma children into the ordinary education system amounts to discrimination.The applicants of the case Sampani and Others vs Greece were 140 Greek nationals of Roma origin. They complained to the court that they or their children had been enrolled at the 12th school primary school in Aspropyrgos which was attended exclusively by children from their own community and provided a lower standard of education than other schools.”
