Abstract: This article puts forth a call for change in multicultural teacher training in Slovenia in order to prepare pre- and in-service teachers to work with immigrant pupils. According to many researchers (Slovenian) teachers are not provided with even the basic skills which are needed to work with immigrant pupils. This could lead to a lack of critical reflection on the part of the teachers who are ill-prepared to assess their own stereotypical perceptions and prejudices and are therefore unable to evaluate the influence this might have on their relationship with immigrant pupils. If, in the future, we fail to provide systematic professional development of pre- and in- service teachers for working with immigrant pupils, we risk their inclusion into the Slovenian education system becoming even more problematic.
Keywords: multicultural, intercultural, education, immigrants, integration, teacher training, slovenian schools
