The Consequences of Cumulative Discrimination: How Special Schooling Influences Employment and Wages of Roma in the Czech Republic
This paper looks at the role of special schooling in driving labour market inequalities between Roma and non-Roma in the Czech Republic. The authors find that the discriminatory streaming of Roma into special remedial schools for the mentally disabled influences both labour market outcomes and the level of educational attainment; the latter effect being particularly strong. Special school attendance explains a small part of Roma labour market discrimination as typically measured. However, its main impact is through lowering Roma educational attainment suggesting an additional discriminatory element in Roma and non-Roma labour market outcomes. Thus, the authors propose that labour market inequality should be understood as a complex outcome of cumulative discrimination.

These relationships make class attendance a better predictor of college grades than any other known predictor of academic performance. Implications for theoretical frameworks of student academic performance and educational policy are discussed.
