Let's have a look at Canada

Contrary to Finland, which is a relatively homogenous society (only 3.8% are foreign-born), Canada has to deal with diversity. In Ontario, schools have raised their test scores and graduation rates by providing resources such as full-time student success teachers, who help English-language learners (ELLs) and other students in need.
"A lot of the students that do come new to the country have a variety of needs and that may be academic, it may be social, it may be language-based. it may be family-based, it could be just survival skills... And a student's success person is a critical piece in a school to help support that child".
