Culture and learning styles

I finally picked a topic for my seminar paper... and I'm curious as to people's real life experiences.

My topic is learning style, culture, and education. Basically, the idea that minorities are compelled to "act white" to succeed in school, that cultural learning styles and values are not taken into consideration and it can be very difficult to achieve in a majority-run education system.

If you are a minority, to what extent do you think any school struggles you may have experienced were because you were expected/required to "assimilate" or "act white"? Do you think your learning style was accomodated in school? Do you think your culture's primary learning style is different than the majority's?
