She writes that language may present a barrier for students who speak pidgin and creole languages. Unlike other languages such as Spanish and Chinese, pidgin and creole languages are not commonly recognized in classroom settings. As a result of this students are not taught the Standard American English (SAE) used on tests as a second language in the same ways as students who speaks Spanish or Chinese.
