Equality 2.0 – the Roma girls and boys in Czech schools

The main goal and benefit of the project was to conduct pilot research at primary schools focused simultaneously on gender and ethnicity. This was the first survey in the Czech Republic based on “intersectionality” in the context of multiple discrimination. By means of quantitative research (a comprehensive questionnaire) at the three participating schools, we mapped how Czech teachers perceive ethnicity and gender in their teaching practice; we have received nearly a thousand answers and thus acquired a representative sample. We succeeded in engaging the target group (teachers) sufficiently even though they are generally very busy individuals. Thanks to the many talks at schools, round tables with principals and teachers, project days with children and other activities, we managed not only to describe the perception of the issue in these schools, but also to change it qualitatively. Each school was given its own methodological materials based on the research conducted at the school and one general packet of materials (worksheets). We conveyed the research findings to representatives of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports at a seminar that we organised on its premises. The detailed and thorough research is summarized in the publication, which is and will be a valuable resource for teachers and employees of the Ministry of Education, NGOs, journalists, and the general public.
