    My opinion is that a statistician is behind this assertion. A class consisting solely of refugees from one country who share a common language will no doubt progress at a better rate than the indigenous population once they have acquired enough English language. However, a handful from different countries in a class need a huge amount of extra resource to bring them up to the level and that costs the school extra money which inevitably is taken away from the indigenous pupils and thus hinders their progress.

    The fact that there is no mention whatsoever of the word motivation in your post robs it of all credibility.
