Summary/Abstract: Ilona Liskó analyzed the data from a research project conducted between 2006–2007 which examined the effects of teacher trainings in the Integration Scheme. The Integration Scheme is intended to promote the integrated education of socially disadvantaged and Roma children and the improvement of the institutions that educate them. Throughout the research work the background of the trainees, the evaluation and the outcome of the trainings were examined. The study focuses on the impact of the trainings on the attitudes of the teachers trained. The data showed that the effectiveness of the trainings was strongly influenced by the attitudes of the trainees. The trainings had a positive effect on the attitudes of the teachers trained but the effect was rather small. The majority of the teachers did not believe that students’ skills could be improved neither before nor after the training, and they had serious doubts about whether a successful integration between schools would be possible at all.
