Chapter Summary

The topic of Roma education is by no means new. In actual fact, Roma have been objects of governmental 'education' policies since the beginnings of the Enlightenment. The evolutionary theories of change were used not only for the justification of colonialism but also for the 'civilisation' of those parts of the domestic population that were considered as having stagnated at a more primitive stage of evolution. This chapter examines how it might be worthwhile to deconstruct the 'mainstream' law of education when seen from the viewpoint of Roma in educationally disadvantaged positions. From the viewpoint of educationally marginalised individuals, it is important to underline that universal standards do not equate the universal right to basic education with compulsory primary education.
