Based on the articles we have read; we cannot conclude whether cultural diversity improves school performance in the classroom. What we have learned is that this cultural diversity is not socially accepted as something equal, and this means that people from cultures other than the dominant one is not respected by students and even by teachers and this creates a very significant sense of inequality.
On the other hand, projects are starting to be carried out in some classrooms, which promote this diversity as an educational progress to have more efficient schools.
Therefore, we conclude, on the one hand, that there is not enough information on the subject, and on the other hand, that these inequalities do not help school performance.

Harvard es una de las mejores universidades del mundo y al mismo tiempo con una diversidad cultural alta.

Pero reconozco que este comentario no demuestra que es la diversidad lo que genera buenos resultados en Harvard. Pero si puede apoyar la idea de que la diversidad cultural no es obstáculo para obtener buenos resultados.
