By providing this insight into communication they are able to point out the deficiency seen in Kleinfeld’s work, as she has failed to include this aspect in her work effectively. The study is mainly based on previous works in the field which are either descriptive or analytical in nature.
The authors argue about some of Kleinfeld’s ideas related to the extent of impact of cultural differences on educational attainment of learners; especially among the minority students. They also argue that cultural differences are essential factors that might influence the learning processes, to which Kleinfeld does not appear to be paying attention. Thus, studying and understanding the real situation of cultural differences might improve the learning conditions and ultimately learning outcomes by affecting the cognitive process of the learners. This impact reflects the need to study and address the educational needs. The issue of cultural differences reflects the need for a change in educational practices to improve education achievements.
The authors also stress the importance of using appropriate methods in studying cultural issues because personal attitudes of teachers in schools cannot work as evidence for studying minority students. Ethnographic studies can be taken as an example in this case, but there are other quantitative methods that may help in communicative and non-verbal studies. Thus, it will become clear that non-verbal differences are more obvious than the spoken language. A lack of existence of a common language of communication between two individuals may result in unclear signaling of expressions.
The authors further argue that Kleinfeld in her work has assumed that it is lack of ‘motiviation’ that affects the learning of minority students. This implies their unwillingness to learn about the cultural values of the majority

This kind of a research design is quantitative in nature which draws on deductive analysis of the data collected and analyzed through statistical methods. However, to draw from the inductive research methodology in addition to the deductive methodology, the company can adopt a mixed research design methodology as it helps in avoiding the pitfalls of both quantitative and qualitative research methodologies while helping to take advantage of both simultaneously.
There has been contact between different cultures at most points of time in history; however, the extent of the contact between different cultures at this point in the history of the world is unprecedented.

To analyze critically, the most important components of the appraisal are an evaluation of the appropriateness of the study design to adequately deal on the research questions and a careful assessment of the key methodological aspects of the design. The other important aspects which should be analyzed are suitability of the statistical methods used and their subsequent interpretation, if there could be potential conflicts of interest and the relevance of a research to practice application.
Moreover, research studies in the human science fields; such as health and social sciences, not only refine and add to what is already known in theory and practice, it also empowers the professional to capably foresee and manage the complex and constantly changing challenges facing these professions, considering the changing conditions of the human beings (Laws and Marcus, 2003).
It would thus be obviously significant in the enlightment and dissemination of worldly statistics relating to birth rates. More significantly, it comes in handy when planning global economics and evaluating global
