A question that may occur is probably why I have my main focus on the educational sector. It is simple to answer, because I believe that education is the key to a successful life. So schools, as educational institutions are playing an important role for precluding racist thoughts and acts. Another point is young people are easier to influence and guide. They are our future and represent, to a dominant extent, the spirit of each nation. Islamophobia definitely is a phenomenon in British schools and society, not at least because of the existence of Islamic schools. I try to find out to what extent, how it occurs and expresses its power. My work seeks to point out what must be done to prevent such racist ideas, in schools and work towards a multicultural nation, which will be under certain circumstances proud of its variety. I believe that variety is the spice of life. I aim to reveal possible starting points, which could avoid tendencies towards racism and a segregation of Muslims in British society.

1. Islamophobia in the Multicultural State Great Britain

I am convinced that language is culture, culture is communication and communication is the key to life. Consequently, it becomes clear that terms like Multicultural and Islamophobia are powerful. Selecting wisely how to use and where to use them is hence of main importance to me, not only for personal, but for educational purpose. These are main reason why I would like to clarify the term Multiculturalism and Islamophobia briefly in the beginning.
Multicultural consists of the words multi and culture. Multi means “a lot”, “many” or “much” and culture is a broad spectrum which is not limited to the following aspects but of course includes all of them. So like I mentioned before, culture consists of language and communication in any form. The term is coined throughout historical events, traditions and values that describe a certain community, and not to forget throughout Art and Science. To some degree, philosophy and religion, as well as the social interactions or rather corporations between humans from the same or different heritage are defining their own individual culture. The coexistence of all these aspects in various forms, no matter if they are productive or unproductive determines the term multicultural. Another important point is the fact that many different nations with many different religions and cultures living side by side. Like I just said, it can have a notion of something positive, but also can denote something negative. Roy Jenkins, home secretary coined the term multicultural in British politics, when he announced that “immigration should not lead to a "flattening process of assimilation" but instead should provide "equal opportunity accompanied by cultural diversity." Since already half a century this theory is well known and points out the positive and negative side effects of multiculturalism in Great Britain. “But now, as the country is struggling so publicly with...
