Many Yazidis, Yazidi organizations and international organizations perceive the absence of preschool institutions in the Yazidi language as assimilation. Their absence means that children enter schools with a non-native language sector, studying without initial training. Many experts, legal experts, human rights activists consider this a restriction on the right to education, and this restriction makes itself felt in the further progress of students, during their studies they always face difficulties in getting an education. Naturally, in places of dispersed residence of Yazidis, parents begin to think about sending their children to kindergartens in the language of the titular nation, and subsequently to schools with a non-native language sector. All this is so interconnected and intertwined, but in the end, it boils down to one thing - the actual disappearance of the right and opportunity of Yazidis to receive education in their native language. It is important to note that we are talking about the existence of an international and constitutional right to the opportunity to receive education in their native language. When this right to opportunity disappears, it is already discrimination and the direction of the entire Yazidi society towards assimilation. Today's children and entire generations, for the most part, do not know how to read or write in their native language, and they prefer not to speak in Yazidi language. They were deprived of the opportunity to receive education in their native language. If you look closely at Yazidis today, they have features of blurring ethnic identity, identity, there are features of assimilation.
