District court in Prešov decides that the district office and the Ministry of Education have no obligation to take effective measures to eliminate segregated education of Roma children at a primary school in a village Terňa. The school had to start educating some Roma children separately at the afternoon second shift and in separate classes due to disputed decisions on school catchment area taken by responsible state authorities. The court decision is not final.
