After their high school education they often choose to move either to Canada, America or the UK to attend university. The preference of English language by the rich has caused many problems over the years for the poor and uneducated in India.

For example, Alevi children in Turkey have to attend the religion lessons that are mostly suitable with the beliefs of the majority and incompatible with their beliefs. As Gay (2010) states, although cultural diversity is seen as a positive and valuable in theory, it is often seen as a threat and tried to be eliminated in real life; and because of this reason teachers mostly deal with aspects of cultural diversity that won’t cause trouble for them.
