Different pupils come from various social groups are involved in the pedagogical and teaching process in a modern school class. This is an undeniable fact where diversity and heterogeneity are new concepts engaged in school environment. A critical question is, are teachers properly informed and pedagogically trained on how to meet the challenges of a new school? How their experiences affect positive attitudes or acceptance and how teaching approach addresses class diversity issues. As a consequence, what is or should be the role of Counseling in order support teachers’ role? These are some of the questions that have been raised in order to organize and carry out this research study.
