The Freedom Writers Diary, written by The Freedom Writers and Erin Gruwell, is a book compiled of diary entries written by Erin Gruwell’s students. These diary entries detail the students’ lives; their struggles, their achievements, and their failures. Many say that this book is “inappropriate,” and try to ban this book from school curriculums because of the real topics that this book goes over, such as addiction, abuse, racism, and more.

In today 's society the grading in an educational system can cause a great deal of controversy as to whether students are actually receiving the grades they deserve and whether grades are measuring the student 's true adroitness. In the poem Marks, the author, Lindon Paston uses a controlling metaphor, diction, and tone to portray a woman 's feeling of confinement and restriction when being graded as if in an education system, by her own family as a stay at home mother.

A seemingly unlikely pair, they are drawn together by the one common interest; their love of writing. While they do have writing in common there is still some contrast; Skeeter was able to finish school and obtained a degree in English and Journalism whereas Aibileen was forced drop out of school when she was a child to help support her family. Subsequently she “writes an hour, sometimes two every day” so that she stays sharp. (175) Aibileen was apprehensive of her relationship with Skeeter, she worried that she could not truly trust her and that she would be in trouble, but as they continued to write the book Aibileen knew she would need to put her trust in Skeeter.
