Compare this to the extreme difficulty experienced by parents of children with dyslexia have in getting absolutely necessary help, and the paucity of it when it is given.

Gipsy pupils have the worst attendance and exam results among all ethnic groups. Of the 9,000 in British schools, only 290 are classified as gifted and talented.
So... about one child in 30 is considered gifted, and that's a poor performance? Seems to me to say a lot about having rather low standards...

It says pupils from traveller families need special attention from school staff to combat chronic underachievement and poor attendance.
So are we talking about Gypos or Pikies? They are not the same. If we throw in “New Age Travellers†as well, they’re totally bloody different!

Daily Mail said:
The teacher should attend traveller events to try to understand their culture and organise days to celebrate key moments in gipsy history, the study adds.
As far as I’m aware, Travellers do not have a culture but do have a number of habits.

Bloody gypos. Whatever happened to the proud English rural tradition of getting pissed up, loading up the shotguns, running off the pikie scum and setting their caravans alight?

Start up the outrage bus! Has anyone else noticed the declining educational standards here? Just who will teach these poor deprived impoverished people about fortune telling and the finer points of "lucky heather"?

They don't need to go to school to acquire these skills.they are taught at home from a very early age.
Jesse, you left out one very important lesson:- 7) How to run rings around the local planners and set up a new caravan site in a weekend.

This has reminded me of a film I saw as a lad. It was called The Water Gypsies. It had bugger all to do with Gypos because it was to do with water traders on the canals of the Midlands, North West and Yorks. The families lived on the narrowboats that moved the marerial and goods of commerce and industry. Those kids seemed to have a disjointed education and were part of normal, respectable working families. Nothing like Gypos and Pikies.
