Throughout the book, valuable lessons Jem and Scout learn are more found in real-life rather than in a school atmosphere. The school life of Jem and Scout is not mentioned in the book that much, but from the scenes they are mentioned, seems to the reader that the school is protecting them and holds them back. In real-life, Scout and Jem are revealed to court cases, racism, murder, and etc.
I asked./ “Because they don’t bother you,” Jem answered in the darkness.” This displays how Jem developed his moral compass through his experiences because Jem mentally grew from his experiences. From his experiences, Jem learned that the world isn’t always nice but it is rather cruel and because of this he grew to become empathetic, knowing how it felt to be put down by others. Furthermore, on page 259 it’s written “That’s what I thought, too,” he said at last, “when I was your age. If there’s one kind of folks, why can’t they get along with each other?
Education is a small word but it has a big meaning it can change your life and take you to another level and a new world, it teaches you how to communicate with everyone and everywhere, like Malcom X said “ Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.” In to kill a mockingbird Scout values education and understands how important it is to be educated, it’s like having a big power.

As a young adult, one of the challenges I faced is bullying. I was bullied in my primary school years, first grade to third, while attending a local school in my home town in Ethiopia. I don’t have a lot of memories from that time frame but I do remember the hardship and constant feel of demotivation. However, I also remember the numerous time my teachers awarded me gift as I would place first in my class.
Another instance of sexual abuse in The Glass Castle is when Walls’ Uncle Stanley touches Jeannette inappropriately. After telling her mother of this incident, Jeannette receives no sympathy. In fact, Rose Mary ends up giving her sorrow to Stanley, claiming that she feels bad for him because he is “lonely.” Rose Mary also states that sexual assault is a “crime of perception.” This dismissal and victim-shaming is prevalent in today’s world.
Gregory writes out how the teacher shows a flippant tone, because the way she treats the young boy without respect, even though she is much older than him, she doesn’t act like a teacher, “I guess she couldn’t see a kid who made noises because he wanted someone to know he was there.” Gregory would do everything in his power to get even the slightest bit attention, even if he had to act Facetious. Adding bits and pieces of inappropriate humor here and there. But, then when it was time for the Community Chest, he wanted to impress Helen Tucker and hopefully a good majority of the kids that he could pay more, but the teacher didn’t bother to call on him so, “I stood up and raised my hand. “What is it now?”
Scout knows it would not be smart to just run away, so she goes up to Miss Caroline and supports her. Back in paragraph 7, it talks about how Atticus being the deadliest shot in Maycomb county changed Scout’s opinions toward Atticus. Scout would now respect Atticus more and not be so naive as to doubt Atticus’s skills. This also shows how kind Scout is, because Atticus still only does office work, which the entire town judges him for, and Scout still loves him for what he does and why he does it. Paragraph 8 goes back to Miss Caroline and how Scout could read, which Miss Caroline disapproved of.

I found the Hull house project and this book very similar because they both believe that to better understand the society and situations they are in, you have to live it yourself. And I believe that is true but at a certain extent. One cannot tell how it feels like to be poor if s/he has never been poor or have never been in a place where poor people lives. My kids are a great example to that. Thankfully we have everything and we share what we have with our kids all the time but sometimes we want to limit things then my kids would say no then we show the picture of kids who are poor and homeless and try to teach them to be thankful instead of asking more
On the other hand, while David is spying on the Tomkeys, he thinks, “Because they had no TV, the Tomkeys were forced to talk during dinner. They had no idea how puny their lives were, and so they were not ashamed that a camera would have found them uninteresting” (Sedaris 720). He is also setting a suspicious mood on what he is going to do next. His choices are to tell the Tomkeys that their lives were puny and insignificant or he can tell them nothing and be their friend. He is also a suspicious character because reader are unknowing of his plans.
If their child does poorly in school they will blame the teacher for not doing their job. In contrast, parents apart of a higher social class tend to be more involved in their child’s school work resulting in high expectations of their children 's success in the classroom. Children become more self driven and motivated to complete their assignments and pass classes in hopes of not disappointing their parents. From my own experience, my parents have always been involved in my school activities. This not only has assisted me in the learning process, but also taught me assertiveness and confidence.
