2.  Children from certain sociocultural groups in the United States (e.g., low income children, Hispanic or African American children, esp. those from low income families) are often considered to be at risk for school failure.  In fact, they often do not do well in school.  The issue can be even greater when such children come from immigrant families. Using existing theory and research in developmental psychology, give 1 reason explaining why certain of these children may have difficulty succeeding in school. (8 points).
