The results published in the study form a part of a long-term research carried out by the Department of Social Studies at the Faculty of Education, Masaryk University, Brno. The main subject of the research is the education of socially handicapped pupils. A partial portion of the study presents experiences gained from a focus group as a key method of quality oriented research. Using several research modules, the authors attempted to analyze the circumstances of Romani pupils both in schools and families. The data was gained through all involved parties: Romani assistants, as well as teachers and students tutoring Romani families during the course of the Home tutor project.
