Roma report review committee
As part of the project quality control and editorial review process translations of the original report were distributed to members of the Roma community with a request for feedback on:
Although overall content has been judged to reflect the state of affairs surrounding the Special schools the section on economics was, on the whole, judged to be difficult to understand. In particular paragraphs 154 through 208.
ECRE has also received separate comments from the Audit Commission who judged the criticisms of the Roma reviewers to be fully justified in so far as the wording in this section was not clear and some of the tables somewhat confusing.
The Audit Commission also drew our attention to (1) the fact that the upper population growth rate for Roma used by ECRE was too high and that (2) the final paragraphs referring to post-school human resources planning challenge was not clear enough.
Re-issue of section paragraphs 154 through 220
As a result of this feedback ECRE has completed an analytical and editorial review and has re-written the whole of the end of the Report to take this feedback into account. We have rewritten the report from the original paragraph 154 through to the end of the Report which now ends on paragraph 220.
Please note that this re-write is so comprehensive that there is not much point in producing a tabulation of previous text and replacement texts. We therefore advise all interested parties to download a new copy.
