Thus the performance gap in between the poor starts as early as immediately after birth. The main issue which may concern parents, educators and the government is that this word gap, as innocent as it might seen, contributes significantly in the latter academic years of the child. Those children with word deficiency are much more likely to be affected and to lag behind in their academic achievement (Straubhaar et al 69). This therefore this is a serious issue which must the looked in a different way because the issue of word gap, despite having been discovered over twenty years ago, continues to affect many millions of children. The word gap is also seen to be expanding and in turn the achievement gaps in elementally, secondary and colleges can be seen to also expand.
It is rather an unfortunate thing that some of the factors causing performance gaps are factors which can easily be taken care of. For instance, world gap is an issue which parents and family members of a child can deal with by being more responsive to toddlers. It means that awareness should be given to the poorer parents and families in order to help them understand the need to be more responsive to their children and help them to learn as many words as possible. One of the issues which come up with regard to any kind of academic performance gap, such as the world gap, is that poorer families don’t see the need to engage in their child’s education. Unlike the richer families who engage in guaranteeing that their child will get the right education even if it is from home, the poorer families are less concerned and leave the burden to the teacher. This can be detected in the early years of preschool when the child is still learning their vocabulary. Poorer families may not have the tendency to want to teach their children basic needs. Poor families also seem to have a culture that does not promote the intellectual developing of their children. However, this
