To Kill A Mockingbird, by Harper Lee, is a book about the racial tensions and segregation that arose in the 1930’s. The general storyline is about the main characters, Scout and Jem. At the start of the story, Jem and Scout were always discriminating against other characters, especially Boo Radley. The town was split in half due to racial segregation and Atticus Finch, their father, was a lawyer who doesn’t care who he’s representing because he’s a man of integrity and decency. Scout and Jem eventually mature and start to understand the dangers of discrimination after they see that Boo Radley is just a human and not the person that they all made him into.
While with a uniform you wear the same thing all year. Another example is, “When everyone is dressed the same, worrying about what you look like isn’t so important. There is no competition about being dressed in the latest trend, which would put a great deal of financial pressure on students and parents. Potential bullies have one less target for their insults; it’s hard to make fun of what someone is wearing when you’re dressed exactly the same” (Spencer) This evidence conveys that with everyone at a school wearing the same thing this gives bullies one less thing for them to make fun of. When you take away bullies “fuel” this leaves less kids being attacked by them.
"It 's not about what you do for your children, but what you have taught them to do for themselves, that will make them successful human beings" stated Eppie Lederer, a former American columnist for the Chicago Sun-Times newspaper. In the novel "To Kill A Mockingbird" written by Harper Lee, a small town filled with narrow-minded people, refuse to accept change. When a middle-aged lawyer, Atticus Finch, takes on a controversial case, the town begins to question Mr. Finch and leaves his two children too curious for the town’s comfort. Although some might say Atticus does a poor job raising his children, Lee proves that the best parenting comes from a strong-minded person with integrity, regardless of what others think through Atticus ' empowering advice, strong morals, and his belief in equality. Atticus always has empowering advice to give to his children because of his integrity and ability to stay calm.
I believe because of his race, he was put into jail. "Suppose you and Scout talked colored-folks ' talk at home it 'd be out of place, wouldn 't it?” (page 127). Tom Robinson was a kind hard laborer. He had a large family, and worked hard to keep them stable. In the story Mayella also provoked Tom when he would pass by her house.
Amy Morin said, “They often encourage their children to talk with them about their problems, but they usually don't put much effort into discouraging poor choices or bad behavior.” This shows that as parents, they can make their child open up and talk to them but never help them make the right decisions. While they want to be more of a friend, you can argue both sides. A child would love if their parents were their friend and they can be as open as they want to them as if they were in school. But If a child does not have authority figures to protect him/her then there will be little to no rules/boundaries on what they can do then they can have lack of self-discipline, become self-centered, battle with authority, act out, and also take in bad habits such as underage drinking and the use of drugs.

A child should develop his own mentality by discovering things on his own. This, however, can be done only when children are exposed to society and not simply with their parents alone. While talking about schools, Wollstonecraft disapproves boarding-schools calling them “hot- beds of vice and folly.” Boarding schools are strict and tend to mould students in every way. However, when they become free during their vacations at home, boys somehow according to Wollstonecraft become slovenly and gluttonous and cunning. This is very true in the sense that when children are dealt in a very strict manner, the moment they set out to the world on their own they tend to enjoy the most freedom.

He accused Mister Robinson of raping his daughter because he saw him doing something with his daughter, but he did not hear Tom’s side of the story he only wanted to think in his own way. He used his preconceptions about black people to judge the black man, even if the man was innocent. I would never accuse an innocent man if I knew he was innocent, but if I knew he was guilty I would take him to court in the hopes of him being locked up for the rest of his
