One of the social groups in our country that faces special social, cultural and economical problems is the Gypsies. The majority of the Gypsies is illiterate. The great majority of these children do not go to Kindergarten, many children do not enroll in school and enough of them face serious learning problems. The last years the Greek Government has taken a number of measures for the reduction of illiteracy of the Gypsies. The Government believes that to accept the Gypsies in our educational system and, as a result, to give them equal chances in learning is possible to be attained only through their attendance at common schools without having to go to schools specially made for Gypsies. However, despite the measures that the Government has taken as for as the education of the Gypsies is concerned, the results are not the expected ones. The education of the Gypsies is a rather complicated matter that the educational community and the Government have to consider very carefully in order to find a solution.
