So there is a higher likelihood of students coming from better socio-economic status tend to be more successful because they have higher self-efficacy because of their past successes (Schunk, 2012). Anyon (1981) also pointed out in his article that children coming from four different school settings responded the meaning of knowledge acquisition and construction differently.

One of the first adjustment problems and the most important one is English language proficiency, improving the English language by studying hard, motivation, adopt with group work, and ask the teacher for help when something is unclear will help the students to adjust.

The United States has to move toward implementing better literacy-directed learning in our school’s classrooms. In the long-run, this will help the U.S. compete on the national level with other countries.

Increased usage of technology will act as a supplement for traditional instruction, and thus strengthen the effect that it will have in the lives of students everywhere. Therefore, where there are tight budgets, and shortage in textbooks, the usage of technology gives communities hope and a stronger belief that no child will be left behind.

There are many reasons for why we should learn English.

Bilingual education is focused on trying to maintain the student’s ethnic identity, but also become proficient in both languages through either immersion, transition, pullout, or maintenance programs. Incorporating bilingual learning into everyday curriculum through immersion, transition, pullout, or maintenance programs, will only strengthen our community, city, state, and our country.
