Educational Equality for Gypsy,Roma and Traveller Children and Young People in the UK Brian Foster and Peter Norton (pdf)
This article provides evidence that, in the field of education, Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities suffer manifestly unequal outcomes. Drawing particularly on the authors’ first hand experience of working to advance educational equality for these communities in one area of London, the article explores some of the reasons why this is the case, highlighting the day-to-day experiences of Gypsy, Roma and Traveller families. It also considers some of the efforts that have been made to improve
outcomes. It concludes by considering the emerging policies of the current Coalition
Government and attempts to assess their likely impact on equalities.
