Roma, Curriculum, and Textbooks: The Case of Greece  [PDF]
Dimitris T. Zachos
Creative Education (CE) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2017.810112
Abstract: The aim of this paper is to search out the educational problems that students of Roma origin confront, especially those coming from institutional arrangements and laws. Toward this end, we undertook a content analysis of all of the text-books currently used in Greek primary education. Our research showed that, despite their improvement, the “new” textbooks continue to treat Greeks as the center of interest in education. The weak presence of Roma in textbooks renders the imperative need for a curriculum which explores issues of social inequality and injustice; a curriculum which will set forth the problems, activities, and accomplishments of all portions of the population, independent of class, ethnic or national origin, sex, sexual orientation or special needs.

Abstract: The article concerns the change of the Gypsy culture under the influence of the integrational processes with the Polish society. The changes occuring in the Gypsy community are sometimes contradictory to the tradition, which is being reproduced within the family. The local leaders working for the benefit of the Gypsy community within more and more numerous societies and organisations, as well as the growing elite of this group, are trying to adjust their community to the changing reality in the least interfering manner.I present the basic cathegories of the Gypsy culture which are integral elements of this society's life. I mean "romanipen", which is the fundamental pronciple of organizing the Gypsies daily social life. It also includes "magaripen", which is a profanation resulting from disobeying the group taboo. Aditionally I describe the special role of the Gypsy family in conveying the group values only by the word of mouth, which makes the Gypsy language significant in defining the identity of the individual. I also present such aspects of the Gypsies' life, which, in my belief, have undergone a crucial change due to the contact with the dominant culture. The object of my interest was the mutual relation between the new chalenges the Gypsy society is going to encounter and traditional group culture.

International Journal of Clinical Medicine (IJCM) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ijcm.2015.61006
Objectives: A retrospective analysis of scald burns in children in a region with a significant prevalence of Roma ethnicity living in poor socioeconomic situation. Patients: During 3 year period 273 children were admitted to the Clinic of Burns and Reconstructive Surgery of our hospital; 201 of them were with scald burns accounting for 73.6% of all pediatric burn admissions. More than half (58.7%) of the 201 children with scald burns were of Roma ethnicity. Results: The average BSAB of the children with scald burns was 10.8%; mean length of hospital stay 11.5 days. 58.7% of the children with scald burns was of Roma ethnicity. The non-scald admissions of children had a similar pattern but these children were older and with an even higher prevalence of Roma patients (75%), a slightly lower average BSAB (9.8%) and a significantly longer need of hospital treatment (average 15.7 days). Conclusion: The frequency of scald burn injuries in very young Roma children in our region is very high. Prevention of scald burns is possible only through targeted and well-organized education of this vulnerable population.

Problems of Intellectual and Policial Accountability in Respect of Emerging European Roma Policy
Martin Kovats
Journal on Ethnopolitics and Minority Issues in Europe , 2001,
Abstract: The paper argues that, at the European level, the situation of Roma minorities represent a new policy issue. However, over the 1990s the level of understanding of this issue became increasingly distorted, reflecting more the interests of mainstream institutions than those of Roma people and communities. In particular, the Roma issue has been increasingly defined in cultural terms, as a matter of discrimination, rather than identifying the causes of and effectively addressing the considerable objective problems faced by many Roma people such as poverty, unemployment, poor housing, health etc. The role of scholars should be to develop methods and theories to aid policy makers' understanding of the complex conditions affecting the highly diverse people covered by the concept of 'Roma'. To date this has not been achieved, partly due to the blurring of boundaries between scholarship and political activism.

Gypsy stories: Narrative as a teaching stratagem
?vorovi? Jelena
Glasnik Etnografskog Instituta SANU , 2010, DOI: 10.2298/gei1001185c
Abstract: This paper discusses the performance of narratives as adaptive cultural beha-viors among Gypsies in Ma va county, western Serbia. Storytelling is a universal activity and may well be oldest of the arts. It has always provided a vehicle for the expression of ideas, particularly in societies relying on oral tradition. Gypsies are present in Serbia since the Middle Ages, living within a larger Serbian culture as a minority group. Ma va, an agriculturally rich county in western Serbia, is a place where local Gypsy traditions are still alive and which help distinguish between Gypsy subgroups and the larger Serbian society. The stories analyzed are part of a collec-tion made from several different Gypsy groups exhibiting varying degrees of influence from Serbian culture. Gypsies in Serbia have no written literature, but possess a rich and varied storytelling tradition delivered by word of mouth through the generations. Their stories bear testimony to the evolutionarily important mecha-nisms employed by Gypsies to make their way in the world. Gypsy stories concern many aspects of the relationship between themselves and other social groups, both in the past and the present. At the same time, the stories deal with universal adaptive problems, such as origin/ethnicity, kinship and mate acquisition. By applying the concepts and folk knowledge from their own culture, Gypsies have managed to provide for themselves the guidelines to overcome these problems within a par-ticular environment. Thus it is that these stories reflect both human universals and cultural peculiarities - by utilization of localized cultural solutions to adaptive problems. The success Gypsies have achieved in surviving harassment, and their ability to sustain themselves and their cultures despite social rejection can be attributed, in part, to the power of the traditional stories to influence the behavior of those who hear them. For the Gypsies, telling and listening to the stories could be considered adaptive behavior: disseminating traits that were presumably successful in the past. These stories replicate and describe the environment in which the Gypsy ancestors struggled to survive. As a consequence, the narratives and the Gypsy real world are compatible in many constant and predictable ways, and many Gypsies are hence able to use narrative information/knowledge as a model for proper behavior which helps them to negotiate their social environment in their efforts to survive and reproduce.

Roma in the Czech Republic: An Excluded Minority
Laura Cashman
E-Sharp , 2004,
Abstract: In May 2004 the Czech Republic became a member of the European Union (EU) and another boundary, which had separated the country from Western Europe since the middle of the twentieth century, was finally removed. Czechs never stopped considering themselves European, despite the invisible lines drawn on political maps. They regard the cold war as a blip in the nation's long history at the heart of Europe. However, Czech society is not homogenous and with EU accession another group of people, with an equally long history in Europe, have also been accepted as members of the EU family. These people are the Roma.
