Martin Košnar, director of the primary school in the Předlice quarter of Ústí nad Labem, says that exponentially more children than usual are enrolling into the first grade there. All of the children enrolled there are of Romani nationality.

“It’s not that the school was established as a Romani one, that fact has developed on the basis of the situation in Předlice,” Košnar said. The school will be enrolling 23 children this year, seven of whom will attend a preparatory class and the rest of whom will make up two first-grade cohorts.
