In this paper, we examine the problems of education of the children from minority groups which don't have their own education system and have to participate in schools designed for children from majority group. For our research we choose the children from two minority groups: Roma and Vietnamese. Our theoretical backgrounds are the concepts of the reproduction of culture by Pierre Bourdieu and Brasil Bernstein. The paper is based on a qualitative research done among the teachers of Polish schools who teach Roma and Vietnamese children. We examine teachers' point of view: their stereotypes, strategies in dealing with kids of different cultural background. We highlight factors from students' cultural background as well as their socialization process that differ their situation in Polish school. As a result of the research we claim that if children from minority group are to succeed at school they have assimilate to the majority culture, and the success against the school is to keep to the culture of origin.
