I'd just thought i'd chime in here.
I worked at primary and secondary schools in Australia for 5 years.
Now I was working for catholic primary schools at that time who took on some refugee's from Africa.
Their children were quite rude (little girl was the worst), indifferent attitude and upsetting the whole class. Their parents didn't really care much
about it, so in the end the other children's parents were forced to move their kids to other classes because of this. Was not because they were being
raciest, but these kids really needed to learn that their attitude was not acceptable they came for a better life. It's not entirely the kids fault. I
feel the parents were still showing them it's ok to do things their way as they did it in Africa, but it's not acceptable when other children's
learning is involved.
In the end the parents moved the kids to another school where there were more African kids.
Now no one was being raciest, the kids (in the class) were educated before they (African kids) came, they were told about their culture and life
before and told to support them.
EDIT TO ADD: I was not the teacher, I was the I.T officer and often had to help out because I was the only male member of staff at some of the
I would hate to be in Schools in England full of paper pushers and power control freaks trying to level up with their careers making these absolutely
stupid decisions to better themselves.
I wish the leaders would get into the classrooms more and really understand what's going on.
