JCCS Academic Language Written Assessment Week 33
I think American students are falling behind academically compared to students in other countries. There are kids in other countries who are very smart and know what goes on here as well as there. Us as America in whole don't have the technology that other places may have, so that's another reason we are behind. COMPARED to kids that live in China, us here in America only go to school 5 days a week, while they tend to go for 6 days. Also DATA can prove that a lot of kids who come from different place are a bit smarter academically. Like Tota for example. She came from Iran, and when she got here, she spoke 3 languages, got A's in her classes, and I asked her why she was so smart, she simply explained that everything that we're learning she has already been taught when she was younger. America is not all the way behind for students in our RANGE. But when you put other countries in it, we could be better. That's why American students are falling behind in Academic.
