The public school to prison pipeline was examined in the literature review through zero-tolerance policies and the effects it has played on graduation rates. Zero-tolerance policies have dramatically increased students being recommended to the court system according to the literature review.

As Scout and Jem grow older they learn to cope, take responsibility and are introduced to new aspects of life, one of which is racism. People of the town including children refer to black people as “Niggers”, and raised to think of black people as lower class individuals. “To Kill A Mockingbird” has a strong message towards racism, this is learned from Scout & Jem as they mature throughout the novel and are constantly being exposed to demeaning segregation in Maycomb County. In giving Scout a lesson about racism, Atticus also does the same for the readers of the novel. This happens when Scout asks Atticus what the term ‘Nigger-lover” meant, after being insulted several of times and not knowing if it is an offensive word or not, but had a slight feeling it was when Atticus was being called at.

Teenage girls are constantly under the microscope of parents, teachers, teenage boys, and other teenage girls. It seems like there is a never ending list of things to be judged on.

While some of their key struggles differ from mine, they are still relatable and sometimes uncomfortably so.
In this story everything is the exact opposite which makes this story so appealing. This story has a lot of conflict, these girls think that they really know racism and believe that they cannot be friends with the other young white females that are also at camp with them.
