Blomeyer & Sanz has conducted an evaluation on Inclusive Schools for the Council of Europe

Blomeyer & Sanz completed the evaluation of the Joint Project of the European Union and the Council of Europe ‘Inclusive Schools: Making a Difference for Roma Children’ (INSCHOOL). INSCHOOL aims at ‘enhancing social inclusion of Roma by promoting inclusive education and training in selected national schools in Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania and the Slovak Republic’. The evaluation found INSCHOOL to have made an important contribution to promoting inclusion at practice and policy level in the countries covered by this evaluation, and specifically with regard to making schools more inclusive. The project’s contribution needs to be considered in the context of significant political challenges in promoting Roma inclusion. On the whole, the evaluation found that the project had performed strongly in terms of the evaluation criteria of effectiveness and efficiency, with good prospects for sustainability as indicated by the development in the Czech Republic, Romania and Slovakia of a more supportive policy environment for inclusive education, and the availability of a wealth of practice-level illustrations of the success of inclusion as generated and disseminated by the project, and that policy makers can use to substantiate support for more inclusive approaches.
