The Center for Civil and Human Rights  (Poradňa) welcomes the decision of the District Court in Prešov in the case of a Roma child who was denied access to education during the Covid-19 pandemic due to not having access to the internet and digital technologies. A Roma girl from a marginalized community in Jarovnice sued the Slovak Ministry of Education for failing to provide her with equal access to online distance learning during the Covid-19 pandemic. Poradňa provided her with free legal representation in the court proceedings. The Court upheld the claim and awarded damages in the full amount of €3,000. This the first judgment of its kind not only in Slovakia but also in Europe, highlights wider systemic disadvantages in access to digital technologies and the internet faced by some groups in Slovak society.
