This has been the first segregation case at Supreme Court of Republic of Hungary. The students of Dr. Ambedkar High School from Hegymeg participated at this historical moment.

We could say thanks personally to Dr. Lilla Farkas advocate, Katalin Sztojka and Balint Bernath human right fighters, Erzsebet Mohacsi and Andras Ujlaky presidents of Chance for Children Foundation.

We congratulate to Mr. Tibor Tuza pedagogical expert for his excellent work. Tthe students of Dr. Ambedkar High School and Little Tiger Grammar School followed the whole struggle.

The importance of this historical decision may be compared to Brown v. Board of Education Case in the USA in 1954.

He noticed: Dr. Ambedkar High School is a demonstration: Roma people are able to study at secondary and higher level like anybody else.

Dear Dr. Ambedkar School Team,

I am happy to read the news “”. This is certainly a positive step towards a long-term struggle for the basic human rights or the Gypsies /Romas. Such legal and constitutional rights are important.

Babasaheb Dr. Ambedkar gave constitutional rights to Scheduled Castes / Scheduled Tribes and also recommended rights for Backward Classes. It is responsibility of the Buddhist followers of Dr. Ambedkar to give support and to show solidarity with the Gypsies.

With Love and Metta,
Pravin Bhalesain

Our School 1st Part

Our School (1st Part)
Our school is named after Dr. Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar (April 14, 1891-December 6, 1956) an Indian jurist, scholar and political leader. Born into a poor, dalit (untouchable) family and subjected to intense socio-economic discrimination, Ambedkar spent his life fighting against the Indian caste system and the idea of untouchability. We see his message being relevant for gypsies in our country today.

Our School 2nd Part

Our School (2nd Part)
Our school is serving in a region of northern Hungary where the proportion of high school graduates having matriculation examination is under 1%. At the gypsy settlements of Sajokaza, Lak, Alsovadasz, Homrogd there are thousands of people without the chance of secondary education. We believe, that the application of proper pedagogy will result in the elevation of above mentioned ratio similar to any other group of today's society, and our students so become competitive participants of the labour market.

Our School 3rd Part

Our School (3rd Part)
Our school offers person centered pedagogy, informatics, English language and sciences. By activating dormant energies of unused manpower we bring high grade secondary education to the poorest communities of our homeland.

Our School 4th Part

Our School (4th Part)
The objective of our school is to show the way out of poverty and make environmental stimuli enjoyable for everybody. We knowingly have encouraged our children to make friends with students of other schools years before founding the school. Our task is to transmit the essence of better life standards of more prosperous social strata to our students and their families. It is especially important in health issues, for we do not study to die early as the poor of the villages.

Our School 5th Part

Our School (5th Part)
Even though the school is situated in segregated environment, our efforts are to integrate. The goal is to bring high standard education to a totally unprovided area. The want should be satisfied. The effects of this service then attract non-Romany inhabitants, and lead to building valuable relationships around the segregated community. We believe in the possibility of dark spots on the map today to become bright stars tomorrow.

Our School 6th Part

Our School (6th Part)
We emphasize the values of Romany lifestyle. Even though the life is changing in Alsovadasz, Sajokaza, Lak, Homrogd and the other villages, people are going to have large families with lots of cousins, uncles and aunts for a few more decades. However nice and precious it is, the public opinion of the rest of the county might be different. One of the pedagogic tasks of the school is to provide students with well based confidence to commit to their own chosen lifestyle.

Our School 7th Part

Our School (7th Part)
The aim that our students want to achieve is high school graduation. Trade is offered only to those who want it along with graduation. Even for people fell out of primary education but wanting to learn we make understand that the goal is not just completing primary school but to change their social stand.
