Welcome to Irish Traveller Movement Site!
Education
"Education shall be directed to the full development of the human personality and to the strengthening of respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms. It shall promote understanding, tolerance and friendship among all nations, racial or religious groups" Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 26 (2) "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world" - Nelson Mandela The ITM is striving to achieve equality for Travellers in education: equality of access, participation and outcome. Equality of access, where Travellers can enroll their children in the schools of their choice; equality of participation, where Traveller culture and identity is validated in the school and cultural diversity respected in the curriculum; and equality of outcome, where Travellers will achieve their full potential and attain levels of education similar to the majority population.
