Cultural diversity is defined as the cultural differences that exist amongst people of specific regions, countries, continents and across the globe. Cultural diversity means that people from different culturally diverse areas can maintain their cultural heritage without discrimination or prejudice from others (Diller, 2011). The concept of cultural diversity was brought forward as a positive concept that encourages people not to hide their cultural identities but to embrace and retain these cultural influences. Cultural diversity comes forth in different areas such as language, mode of dressing, ethnicity, religious beliefs, and personal values among others. Traditionally, when cultural and racial discrimination was rife, most people felt it necessary to discard their cultural backgrounds and adopt a more acceptable lifestyle.

Cultural Diversity and the American Educational System In many of today’s schools there has been a push to teach one form or another, about cultural diversity or cultural awareness. This new trend is in many schools across the country, from California to New York. I will speak specifically about how schools are ill equipped to implement cultural diversity as a part of their curriculum and how it raises more problems then it solves. Schools are ill equipped to implement their cultural diversity goals for two reasons: the budget for the school is decreasing year by year, and many schools across the country find it hard enough to teach students about academics, let alone cultural awareness and emotional health. Everybody faces trade-offs.
Abstract Prior research has led to inconsistent findings concerning the impact diversity has on team learning. Building on the base of the categorization elaboration model (CEM), this thesis will investigate the effects different dimensions of diversity have on the learning process of teams in a multinational context. Therefore, a framework visualizing the effects more comprehensible is developed. Three dimensions of diversity, namely cultural, national, and linguistic diversity are regarded. Interdependence, social identity, team need for cognition, and further moderators are identified and evaluated.
Empathy is important in culture differences because it is about understanding and accepting another culture that is different with yours instead of judging the culture whether good or bad and adapts to the foreign culture. (Adler, 1991) Without understanding and accepting culture differences, it will form intercultural barriers such as ethnocentrism. (Donald B. Pope-Davis, 2013) Ethnocentrism is a social bias which views own culture is superior compared than others cultures. Every individual holds ethnocentric behaviors. The degree of ethnocentrism will influence one’s intercultural competence to communicate efficiently and successfully in social context.

Cheating during examination is not the new phenomena in education field and usually happen at school and university. In the era of technology, there are so many tricks that student use to cheating during the examination. So this situation make the teacher felt hard to detect the student that cheating in examination. For example, some student in secondary school copy the examination answer from his or her friend.

Academic dishonesty in college students not only lowering the learning experiences, but it can lead to failure in the course or even students can be expelled from the university.
