Summary/Abstract: Various researches and studies show that Roma population in the Czech Republic faces systematic disadvantages in several areas. The most serious disadvantage is the one in the labor market. One of the main reasons leading to this situation is the low educational level Roma people attain. The causes that lay behind the specifically low qualification of the Roma are the access to various levels of education and the process of passing through the whole educational system.
