Structure of REYN-Croatia membership – 11. 11. 2016.
From its start in February 2014. up to 11th October 2016, REYN-Croatia gathered exactly 300 members, some of them individual, others institutional. This article provides the latest data on the structure of the membership.
In the two years and ten months that REYN-Croatia has been active, it has gathered 300 members. Out of those 300, 261 of them are individual members, and 39 of them are institutions. As it was in the previous member analysis (http://www.reyn-hrvatska.net/o-nama/o-clanstvu-mreze-podrske-romskoj-djeci-reyn-hrvatska - in Croatian) we were interested in results that would help us better understand the structure of membership, and those results are:
- Membership is mostly individual (87%), with a number of institutional members as well (13%). The largest group is full individual members (60%).
- Members are mostly female (77%).
- Looking at individual membership, most members work in primary school (55% ). Next up are members from civil society organizations (21%) and kindergartens (12%). 6% comes from the government.
- Among institutional members, most of them are civil society organizations (39%). 33% are primary schools and 18% are kindergartens. 5% are government institutions.
- The structure of the individual membership shows that 78% of members work in formal education, while 22% work in other branches (mostly informal education, academic and research institutions or government institutions). Out of the 78% who work in formal education, most are teachers (34%), followed by professional staff (i.e. pedagogues, psychologists - 10%), kindergarten educators (10%), principals (9%) and educational assistants (5%).
- 71% of the members work with children older than 7, while 29% works with those in the age range 0-6.
- The highest number of members work with groups of 11-20 children (26%), followed by smaller groups of 0-10 (21%), and larger ones of 21-30 children (19%). 10% of members work with groups of 31-50 Roma children. There are 24% of members who work with very large groups, those above 50 Roma children. 5% work with groups of 51-100 children, and 19% work with groups of a hundred children or above. The reason this number is so high, is because a lot of institutional members, like primary school or kindergartens, counted all of their Roma children when providing us with these numbers.
