|Abstract:||The thesis aims at quantifying the potential fiscal gains of an extra investment into Roma education.
From the budgetary point of view, it would pay off to invest extra money into Roma children, if it
increased future net contributions to the budget. The extra investment into one child could take
values up to the average discounted value of future net benefits per person. The net benefits
represent the increased net contributions due to a higher level of education. The contribution of the
thesis is the estimation of different net contributions of Roma with various educational levels to the
national budget in order to encourage the investment into Roma children. Secondly, we estimated
the yearly loss of the national budget due to lower education among the Roma. And thirdly, we
conducted a survey among the clients of the endowment fund Verda to find the relationship between
their education, employment status and other variables.
