You could consider lots of things with this one

  • Institutional Racism (Schools are racist against ethnic minorites)
  • Bullying in school due to racism
  • Labelling and self fulfilling prophecy
  • Functionalists would also say because they are not part of the social soldarity of education

hope that helps

you could also link in some theories such as interactionists with labelling which can also be linked to mirza who said that black afro-carribbean girls rejected help due to being labelled and consiquently failed, you can also evaluate by saying it can be due to material and cultural deprivation.

hope it helps
