Teacher expectation is another educational reason. Sadly many teachers in schools today lower their expectations of students based on their socioeconomic status. They automatically assume that students who have low socioeconomic status won't do well in school because many are absent from school or have behavioural problems. This can be closely linked to student's home life. Comber (1997) argues that teachers continue to hold deficit views of some students. That is, some teachers hold lower expectations for students from low socio-economic backgrounds, believing that these students have less learning potential than their more advantaged peers, or that background factors will necessarily delay their learning (Ruge, 1999). Teachers need to be mindful about student's backgrounds and respect and understand class differences. They should not automatically have a stereotypical view because this can affect their teaching which will have an effect on student's learning. Rather teachers need to create positive and welcoming classroom environments for both students and parents.
