The study aims to highlight the most common ways of children’s discrimination in Romanian society, without plan a comprehensive approach due to the complexity of the subject. Romanian educational environment in many situations, teachers and even some executives manifested discriminatory attitudes towards students or tolerate. Also, while some pupils from wealthier families manifest inappropriate attitudes towards their classmates or school using discriminatory or offensive language or to poor students from rural areas. Parents who physically and psychologically terrorize their children are guilty of discrimination because certain essential rights rob offspring. Guilty of discrimination are parents who abuse their children, forcing them to work at an early age. State social policies do not ensure equality between urban and rural areas.
The main forms and ways of children’s discrimination in Romanian society are: discrimination child labour, discrimination HIV-infected children and those with disabilities, discrimination in education / education, offensive language, offensive, exclusion from health services, lack of opportunities personal development, domestic violence.
We believe that the school education of new generations of students in European values play an important role in changing mentalities, to combat discrimination against children and all forms of violence in the Romanian society. And social protection institutions are actively involved in combating violence and discrimination, as well as the National Council for Combating Discrimination. In Romania today are increasingly talking about the need to reduce inequalities of any kind between individuals. Also, public institutions, local government and media, by condemning domestic violence and sanctioning all forms of discrimination can contribute to crystallizing a civic attitude, democratic, in which children’s rights are respected and discrimination, abuse and violence disappear.
Key words: children’s discrimination, education, society
