I have taught university students at Berkeley, Princeton, and Boulder. I prefer teaching illiterate Roma, all ages, and learning from them the richness of their culture, the excellence of their skills, and the strength of their families.
The Roma, a group of people who migrated from India to Europe over 1,000 years ago, could save Europe’s flailing economy. But this young and able-bodied population is woefully unemployed and underpaid. Governments must decide that it is important to educate and enfranchise Roma children and their families together.
