Chapter Summary

This book focuses on the problems of individuals with basic skill deficiencies as an issue connected to the universal right to education. It develops an analytical framework for exploring when the national educational legislation should be considered as discriminatory unless or until proven otherwise. In exploring this question, the focus is laid on what international standards say about publicly-funded educational arrangements for individuals above compulsory school age oriented toward a generally recognised qualification. The concept of group rights will be analysed only as a right to sector-specific representation in the clearly demarcated research area. Yet, in the field of education, maybe more than in any other sector of society, it becomes obvious how fuzzy the boundaries between individual and collective rights are.

Keywords: educational rights; Roma; skills acquisition
