The challenges faced by the immigrants and their children in UK
Immigrants and their children face major challenges in UK
Every country has its own set pattern of culture, lifestyle and standard of living. When immigrants move from their native country to another then there are a series of challenges awaiting them.
According to a report published by Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development(OECD) UK has been found to seclude the children belonging to poor families and also to the immigrants. Supposedly these children study in a separate school which is socially segregated.
As reported by OECD, 80% of the immigrant children study in a segregated school along with other disadvantaged students who do not get an opportunity to study in a good school with the natives of the country.
Irrespective of the fact whether the mothers of these children are educated or not they do not get an opportunity to take up a school of their wish, rather they are found to be settled with a disadvantaged school which even lacks in most of the common facilities.
The government is trying hard to grant aids to most of the disadvantaged schools to combat the issue, however, more than financial crisis this is an example of “social discrimination.”
Government is likely to take every measure to bridge the gap between schools serving the richest strata and those serving the poorest ones.
On the other hand, there are efforts made by Richmond Multicultural Community Services (RMCS) to welcome the newcomers and make them feel comfortable in their new nest. They ensure that they reach out the new people coming to the country and let them know about the culture of the nation.
Such organizations understand the fact that skilled workers coming to a new country do not have any relative or friend to fall back upon. The absence of these people makes it quite difficult for them to settle down and adopt the new culture.
There are times when they have to settle down with a low paid job which is nowhere closer to their education which is gain , quite frustrating for them.
The immigrants cannot afford to get frustrated and feel down, rather they have to make all possible efforts to ensure that they learn and adopt fast for a quicker settlement. Those will not help them but even their children too who may join them sometime after they have joined.
