The main result of our study is that the majority of the Romans is an isolated group, both in the Swedish school system and in the society. The Romans got access to the Swedish comprehensive school first in 1965, which implies that the Romans have a young school tradition.

Deficient knowledge about the schools importance in Sweden, analphabetism among a lot of the Roman parents, widespread unemployment, fear of kidnapping within the Roman group and drug abuse problems are some of the grounds behind the Roman children´s school situation.

Our opinion is that the Roman children´s school problems originate from a comprehensive integration complex of problems. (Less)
