Undoing Segregation In A Slovakian School » News » OPB

Excerpt:  “In 2008, the principal of this school, Mária Cvancigerová (who has since been fired and has sued the school for firing her) moved the Roma kids to separate classrooms on the second floor. The Roma kids would get cold lunches and the ethnic Slovak students would have warm lunches served in the cafeteria. When it was time for recess, the whites would go to the Biely Dvor (“white courtyard”) and Roma to the Čierny Dvor (“black courtyard”). Though a few assimilated Roma children remained in the white classrooms, the practical result was racial segregation.”
