Children learn in school, so they are comparing these children with other children. What kind of children are they describing, and how could they be different?

"Children with good communication skills find it easier to learn in school than children with ___ communication skills."

(The best word fit there would be 'poor communication skills' rather than 'bad'. )

If you can talk properly you learn faster than if you struggle to speak properly. That is true for all learning, but especially true for learning to read.
