Abstract. Innovation in education is not a new phenomenon in Bulgarian education.
In the past, innovative solutions in educational institutions have been neglected or even totally ignored by educational authorities. Nowadays, however, they are part of the state policy and are directly dependent on the area where the school is located, the ethnocultural composition of the pupils, the number of its pupils, the social status and activity of the parents, the support of the institutions and the society. In this sense, we have to pay tribute to the role of the pedagogical specialist and place it at the epicenter of innovative solutions in the educational environment. Moreover, we must not forget that it is precisely the teacher who must know the needs of his students, be boundlessly motivated to experiment and show creativity, constantly enrich his experience and to do his best when immersed in practice. The presented material analyzes the results from a survey of pedagogical specialists working in two of the largest schools with Roma students in Sofia. The basis of this questionnaire is their confidence, conviction and faith in the innovativeness of their activities in the process of education and socialization of Roma students.
