Teachers and professors of Albanian ethnicity were pushed out of Schools and Universities (and all cultural institutions), and - against the Yugoslav constitution - Albanian curricula were deleted and teaching in Albanian language was forbidden. Comprising about 90 percent of the Kosovar population Kosovo Albanians were forced to live in a parallel world and feel like foreigners in their own country.
