Experience-sharing discussion on discrimination in education

The Equal Treatment Authority shared the experiences of the official procedures against educational institutions in the procedure with the staff of the training centers and the pedagogical services. By initiating a joint discussion, the Authority supports future work and good law enforcement. ETA plans to continue the dialogue with representatives of other professional groups, among those who are obliged to maintain equal treatment.

The Equal Treatment Authority is constantly analyzing the development of violations in order to reflect it with the tools of the official procedure and in its institutional communication. In this process, the curriculum "Application of Act CXXV of 2003 on the Promotion of Equal Treatment and Equal Opportunities" and the five volumes of thematic EBH booklets have been publishedd. The Authority has regularly reviewed cases in the field of education in recent years. The public education and education system is obliged to keep the obligation of equal treatment in every respect, therefore we consider it important to familiarize the experts with anti-discrimination law and practice in this area.

In order to prevent future violations, the President of the Authority initiated professional cooperation with the head of the Klebelsberg Center and recommended sharing the experience of the administrative procedures. As a result of the cooperation, in February, more than 80 managers of pedagogical services and in May more than 80 managers of the training centers were informed about the anti-discrimination legislation and the issues examined in the field of public education. Participants in the program have also been able to learn and receive case law publications on "Harassment in Education" and "The Equal Treatment Authority on Discrimination in Education". In the dialogue on professional issues in the area of legislation, the participants also shared their practical experience of public education.
