Most people probably don’t show integrity everyday of their lives. There are many examples of Integrity in To Kill A Mockingbird and in our world today that show that a little integrity can go a long way. Atticus showed great integrity throughout the whole book as well as Boo Radley during the final chapters of the book. When times are tough, it can be hard to show integrity. When people send their children to schools they cannot afford and “steal education”(Hechinger Report)”they essentially steal from every hard-working taxpayer.” In Article A, the parents were in a tough situation because they wanted their daughter the good education that couldn’t be provided at the school near where her parents lived and they did not have the
Suggestions are offered to alleviate their struggles. As Karl Marx famously said “[People] make their own history, but they do not make it as they please; they do not make it under self-selected circumstances, but under circumstances existing already, given and transmitted from the past." Likewise, the selection of her family and the environment in which she lived were not determined by Baby. Baby was born in an unstable and derelict environment, paired with fledgling parental support from a heroin addicted father, which hindered her childhood development. This significantly affected the choices she made -- especially during the formative years of twelve and thirteen years old.

But once they move to Welch, we see a more neglectful and destructive parenting style. Both Rex and Rosemary start to ignore the kids, asking them to fend for themselves and each other. This leads to both Lori and Jeannette having to help and almost manage the other two children. But in the long run, this may not have been a bad idea because it strengthened both of their independence. More and more we see this, as the Walls parents put the children in bad situations, they struggle, but eventually fix the situation and learn valuable lessons.
At one point, a young girl wanted to touch Esperanza's doll ,but Esperanza thought she was dirty so Esperanza didn't let her touch it.

The school he was attending was a private school, therefore impacting his image in his neighborhood. “I was becoming too ‘rich’ for the kids from the neighborhood and too ‘poor’ for the kids at school. I had forgotten how to act naturally, thinking way too much in each situation and getting tangled in the contradictions between my two worlds.”(pg.53) With this contradiction eating away at Wes’ educational integrity, his grades and general attendance began to slip into a state of be unsatisfactory. Wes’ mother knew that her son was simply not motivated and was quickly turning down a path he wouldn’t be able to return from. Her decision to take action and send him to a military school would eventually prove to be
Poverty also led the Lacks 's family to injustice for them and their mother 's cells because they simply couldn 't afford a lawyer. The book says, "So in attempt to get Hopkins to give them what they saw as their cut of the HeLa profits they made handouts about Henrietta Lack 's family being owed their due, and gave them to customers at Lawrence 's store". This illustrates that although Lawrence and Sonny couldn 't afford a lawyer, the next best thing was to spread the word, and also shows how they just had to make do with what they had. Rebecca Skloot shows how poverty was a major problem for the Lacks 's family in, "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks". Ranging from medical problems to being an easy target to having injustice.

Leslie was repeatedly confronted on her inability to be honest, skipping classes, associating with negative peers and substance abuse behaviors.

By doing this she explains how working-class parents were afraid for their child to enter the real world because they felt they might grow to be ashamed of their background, or they wouldn’t want to return home, or only come home to prove that their life will be better than their parents. “Class realities separated me from fellow students” (Hooks 419). In most class meetings, class disparity was not a topic of discussion and Hooks never discussed how she began to feel a sense of guilt when she thought about the brown skin Filipina women who got paid to clean the college living areas or how she tried to make an effort to send money home to help her mother out. Even though Hooks knew she would be receiving a good education she also knew she had the option to rebel at any
The fact of Tiffany being first generation American proved to be difficult when trying to integrate into society. Her mother and father not being able to assimilate as quickly as her proved to be the most difficult part because they were starting their lives over completely and were learning on the spot. Growing up with parents who do not speak English well at young age in the United States seems to put a lot of responsibility on a child, which causes frustration for the child as it did in Tiffany’s case. It is interesting that she possibly saw people who looked similar to her and who were of black and white mix, but did not have a connection because her culture was completely different. In the last 15 years diversity has changed for the better
(29, 54) Despite the fact that Jolly was in a bad place, she still had people in her life like LaVaughn who were having a positive influence on her and her actions. For example, Jolly dropped out of high school at a young age because of her giving birth to Jeremy and Jilly. She had never got the chance to go back because she had to work to be able to pay the bills. There was no time to go to school, which Jolly originally laughed at because the thought of going back to school was incredulous to her and it was ridiculous. But then not necessarily willingly Jolly ends up in the Moms Up Program at LaVaughn 's high school due to LaVaughn.
Witnessing my father chasing down my mother because of a pointless argument of my parents not caring about my siblings and I where abouts would be devastating to say the least. In The Glass Castle Jeannette and her siblings chose to appreciate the small things as they got older because they were not given materialistic items or a hot meal when they could afford it. Their mother made poor financial decisions and hardly ever put the kids first. For example, the mom chose to rent a piano over buying Brian a pair of male jeans. He had to suffer wearing girl clothes that did not even fit.
