'...life is not fair and people are not equal...'
People may differ, but are equal in value and should have equal opportunities and rights.
Life not being fair is generally due to the indifference and arrogance of the privileged elite towards the disadvantaged.
I have taught many pupils who had very little English at first. Most of them proved to be extremely attentive, hard-working and quick to learn. They valued the education they were given, and profited by it enormously. They were never a problem to me as their teacher. I enjoyed finding materials and strategies to help them learn English.
Where I lived as a child in West London there were huge numbers of Pakistani folk, and their children came to school with us all. So it's not a new thing.
