ethnic groups is the responsibility of teachers to implement their educational
value. This is so because the students are out of this school system will be
compatible in terms of thinking of all walks of various races.
Understanding among students of different races meet 1Malaysia concept

Strategy for Addressing Problems of seed-seed Racism Among
Strategy One: Increase awareness about diversity of socio-cultural tolerance.
a) awareness of the existence of the nation
The main strategy should be implemented to increase the tolerance of the
student teachers about the social and cultural diversity. Can be construed as
a means of socio-cultural students of all races get along with each other
while communicating. This socio-cultural elements, including awareness of
the existence of race, creed, and language.
a) awareness of the existence of the nation
In the process of teaching and learning (P & P), teachers need to inculcate
values of caring in the classroom. Student teachers should be informed that
the value of friendship is an important thing, even if they come from different
nations. Friendship can be done regardless of whether the nation of Malays,
Chinese, Indian and minority ethnic groups such as Iban, Kadazan and
Etnosentrik properties of a racial or ethnic group who consider themselves
better and stereotypes about other nations should be avoided. The
introduction of collective race or ethnicity is based on certain physical
characteristics like skin color biology, news hair, and eye color does not
become an obstacle to the value of friendship.
Student teachers should also be informed about the sensitivities, beliefs and
customs of other people to be careful in their actions and conversations that
do not offend other people. For example:
- Sensitivity, non-Muslim students must know that pork is haram for a Muslim
- Similarly, the Muslim students also need to understand the Indian students

- Malay prohibiting child sitting on a pillow.
- Chinese people believe in the natural elements such as the spirit of 'yin' and
- The Indian community is more confident on the existence of god, an evil
nature, and spirit.
It is clear that students should be exposed to the beliefs of other people to
avoid misunderstandings during the process of teaching and learning in the
classroom. Students of different races to understand each other.
Teachers need to enlighten students about the importance of Malay
language. Language is the medium in order to disseminate the idea of two-
Therefore, the use of Malay as the medium of instruction in schools is one step
in creating unity among students of various ethnic groups as contained in

described here as a multi-ethnic students to absorb the national language
and reinforce their native language.
d) Adjust language.
Grammar is meant is the use of language in different places such as the
context and situation. This means that the language used by teachers or
students should be based on the speakers, and discussed the situation. A
conscious grammar vocabulary, phrases and sentence structure to convey
something. For example:
- A teacher was discussing the issue of religion, the teacher should use the
term adjustable loans or reference any such use of simile is like a passage or
qiyas like to be precise meaning of the selected word and not stray to other

the key to success teachers perform R & D without causing misunderstanding
among the students.

well as among students of diverse cultures so that they can learn in groups
and discuss in harmony. Learning through this method is more attractive

order to achieve a goal of teacher education. It is therefore consistent with
the concept of accommodation in which students respect the norms and
values of other ethnic groups but still retain their culture. This can be proved
as the following statement:
- This situation can be seen in countries like Switzerland which has a state of
ethnic Germans, French and Italian to make berakomodasi and mutual
adjustment between them. The nature of accommodation and willingness to
accept others of different ethnic lifestyles, customs and religion important to
pave the way for cooperation and agreement of ethnic relations.

various races in a group.

concept of democratization of education so that each race or ethnicity can
enjoy the same facilities in education, whether in urban or rural areas. The
attitude of equality in education is to strengthen the ties between students of
different ethnic origins.

to students who are less fortunate due to backward education inequalities in
