28. The cultural adaptations on both sides of the situation are like a
teacher saying to young students "You will do calculus and chemistry or else!!!" and then providing no materials, no step-wise curriculum, no support processes, no rewards and just walking away until some unspecified time in the future, at which s/he returns and demands to see the equations and no matter what s/he receives, no matter if there is any part of the work that is at least a little bit right, the students are punished and then the "teacher" disappears again, without providing any of what is needed to help the learning to happen, and then re-appears at some arbitrary point in the future again, to demand the work again . . . and that's all that ever happens.

Having been in highschool classrooms myself for 8 years, it is an important aspect of what I am saying here that: both groups in the immigration situation function as teachers to the other group and both group SHOULD function as students to the other group.

What we have now is Both groups are acting as dysfunctional teachers and both groups are functioning as students who become more and more resistant to the learning:teaching process.

Both sides recognizing and accepting responsibility for their roles in reciprocal relationships is the key.
