The Program’s main goal is the equal access to quality education as it specifically mentions that the equal access “doesn’t mean equal care for all children, but differentiating that care according to their different needs”. That means that “those children who don’t have an equal start need to have special care regarding their adequate participation in the educational process”.

The action plan for the Center’s activities for the period 2007 – 2009, further called “the three-year action for the Center’s activities” reflects the principles and directions based in the Strategy and helps with their implementation. The Strategy identifies the problems in front of the educational integration and classifies them as common and specific for each ethnic group. It brings to five main strategic goals to which will be directed the Center’s activities during the next three years.
