O scoala pentru toti?Education for all?

Acum cateva luni, Unicef Romania a lansat raportul de cercetare “O scoala pentru toti? – accesul copiilor romi la o educatie de calitate“.  Studiul este bazat pe date calitative si cantitative din 100 de unitati de invatamant din Romania cu ponderi diverse de elevi de etnie roma si vine in completarea unor lipsuri in ceea ce priveste datele concrete si cifrele in acest domeniu.

Cateva din rezultatele cheie ale studiului releva ca:

  • pe masura ce creste ponderea de copii romi intr-o scoala, descreste calitatea dotarilor materiale de care scoala dispune, precum laboratoare sau teren de sport
  • pe masura ce creste ponderea de copii romi intr-o scoala, descreste probabilitatea ca scoala sa dispuna de propria biblioteca sau de calculatoare
  • scolile cu ponderi importante de elevi romi dispun in mai mica masura de cadre didactice calificate si consilieri scolari incadrati
  • numarul de ore de formare continua a cadrelor didactice este de asemenea mult mai mic: in media 7 ore, fata 50 necesare
  • rata abandonului scolar la romi se ridica la 9%, factorii determinanti fiind in primul rand saracia (44%) si obtinerea in mod repetat a unor rezultate nesatisfacatoare materializate in corijente sau repetentii multiple (16%)
  • stereotipul potrivit caruia parintii romi nu isi trimit copiii sa scoala este invalidat: doar 9% dintre parintii romi s-au aratat neinteresati de educatia copiilor lor, in timp ce 90% dintre parinti au manifestat atitudini pozitive fata de educatie, mentin contactul cu cadrele didactice si isi incurajeaza copiii sa obtina rezultate bune.

The study is based on qualitative and quantitative data from 100 education institutions in Romania, with various percentages of Roma students. The study aims to cover a gap of data and specific numbers in this field.

Some of the key findings of the study reveal that:

  • as the percentage of Roma students in a school increases, the quality of material resources of the school decreases, material resources such as labs or a sports field
  • as the percentage of Roma students in a school increases, the probability that the school owns computers or a library decreases
  • the schools with a high percentage of Roma students have less qualified teachers, educators or certified educational counselors
  • the number of hours of continuous professional development of teachers and educators is also smaller: on average it is 7 hours, compared to 50 required
  • the rate of school abandonment is 9% among Roma students, the most significant factors being first of all poverty (44%) and repeated poor results leading to failing classes (16%)
  • the stereotype according to which Roma parents do not send their children to school was invalidated: only 9% of Roma parents did not show an interest in their children’s education, while 90% of parents showed positive attitudes towards education, maintain contact with teachers and encourage their children to obtain good results.
