This chapter explores different questions as a means of understanding the dismal classroom situation and establishing criteria for positive change. This way Bishop and the Kashaya schoolboard might have a way to think about ideas and suggestions for change. The chapter focuses upon the students' reading of the Slug Woman text. It also exposes cultural conflicts and associated psychological tensions that play an integral role in the formation of chasms leading to student dissatisfaction and alienation. The chapter aims to provide a means for thinking about issues of student reading and response.

Keywords:   Kashaya schoolboard, Slug Woman, cultural conflicts, psychological tensions, student dissatisfaction, student reading
