The non-governmental organization Center for Civil and Human Rights (Poradňa) is suing the state represented by the Ministry of Education and the city of Stará Ľubovňa for segregation of Roma children at the primary school in Stará Ľubovňa – Podsadek. The school has been attended for a long time solely by socially disadvantaged Roma children. The Poradňa argues in the judicial proceeding that education given in an ethnically segregated school is unable to provide to Roma children equal educational opportunities, and proposed their integration in primary schools with the other children of the city.
