Theme II – Resources – Lesson 3
Karl is a high school student whose family came to Indiana from India a few years ago. His father is an engineer with inland Steel in northwest Indiana. Many East Indian professionals have moved to this area to buy homes and send their children to local schools. Karl points out that sometimes it is hard to be accepted at school unless you play sports. Other pressures come from traditional parents, who may not understand what it is like to be an American teenager.
