A school in Leicester is running a project in the Czech Republic to share teaching methods and tackle discrimination against Roma children.
Babington Community College has about 80 Roma pupils - many of whom were sent to remedial schools, or segregated in their native countries.
One pupil said his previous school thought Roma children were not "mentally capable" of learning.
