Segregated schooling for children of different races proposed in the Czech Republic

16. 5. 2009 / Jan Čulík

An elementary school in the town of Valašské Meziříčí, Czech republic, proposes to set up segregated classes for primary one pupils at the beginning of the forthcoming school year in September 2009. One class will be reserved for white children only, Romany children will be taught in a separate class, reports (in Czech) the Czech daily newspaper Mladá fronta Dnes.

On its server, MFD has asked its readers whether school classes in the Czech Republic should be segregated in this way. It is a remarkable testimony to the thinking of the readership of this daily that some 47 per cent of readers have said that they support racially segregated education in the Czech Republic.
