One in One Hundred: Drivers of Success and Resilience among College-Educated Romani Adolescents in Serbia
The report title refers to the 1 percent of Roma who beat the odds and reach university. The project compared the educational trajectories of 89 Romani adolescents who succeeded in attending college in Serbia and 100 Romani youths from similar neighborhoods who did not. Almost all of the respondents (93 percent) in the sample (both college students and the comparison group) reported that their parents valued education for their children, in contrast to the dominant narrative that Roma are indifferent or hostile to education. In the study, Roma students also revealed they had faced a severe degree of discrimination. What emerges is a challenge to the easy story that Roma lack of educational achievement results from Roma cultural attitudes rather than persistent racism and poverty.
