After that August interfered and gave him an easy way out so that Lily could stay and go to school in Tiburon and T.Ray would leave her alone. All of these events put an imprint on who Lily became. T.Ray making her kneel on grits and being mean to her made her feel unloved. Her not having a mother because she killed her made Lily sad and angry. She was angry because she was mad that she ever picked up the gun when she was very young.
This study was based on Jessor 's "Problem Behavior Theory”. This is a systematic, multivariate, social-psychological conceptual framework derived initially from the basic concepts of value and expectation in Rotter 's (1954, 1982) (Rotter, 1982, Rotter, 1954) social learning theory and from Merton 's (1957) concept of anomie. According to the social learning theory, learning occurs through modelling. Thus, substance use behaviours may occur through peer influence, where peer model substance use or make substances more readily available or exert mutual influence to use substances as well as peer norms that encourage and perpetuate substance use. Due to this social learning, peers who use substance are more likely to have substance using friends who act as reinforcing agents.
Because of this challenge to the book, the principal decided that all questionable content regarding student curriculum will be disclosed to parents beforehand. In 2003, the book was challenged and then completely banned in George County, Mississippi. The copious amounts of profanity and sexual content lead to this unfortunate conclusion. “Using profanity was against school policy and having the book in the library made newly elected school board member, Larry McDonald, feel uncomfortable.”
These unjust things were only done when the bullies knew that something was different about Jamie. The harassments were reactions of other people towards Jamie’s diversity. No one is the same, there will always be a difference. To make matters worse the principal does not stick up for Jamie during these hard times. After Jamie receives beating in the bathroom before school, Mrs. Nabozny arranged a meeting with the principal, the bullies, and the bullies’ parents.
I guess that's what happens when you flunk out of school and have no education. I'm sure their parents are just as guilty for not knowing what their kids were doing; or knew it and didn't care.” The teacher goes on to add, “I'm almost to the point of wanting them all segregated on one side of town so they can hurt each other and leave the innocent people alone. Maybe the 50s and 60s were really on to something. Now, let the bashing of my true and honest opinion begin...GO!” The reaction to her opinion has been critical, with people taking to Twitter to express their disappointment, frustration, and worry over the teacher’s remarks.

The last way that June was treated badly by the other June is the other June bullied her emotionally. In paragraph 22-34, at swim class, the other June kept telling June her name was Fish Eyes and that June was stupid. The other June told all the other swim class students that June’s swimsuit was found by her mom in the trash. In paragraph 27 it says, “Fish Eyes you really are stupid.” Also in paragraph 29 it says, “You guys see that swimsuit Fish Eyes is wearing? Her mother found it in the trash can!” This proves that June was bullied emotionally.
But Margot was telling the truth, so don’t bully: you do not know the whole story. From the start, you can tell Margot was bullied, as when she told them a poem she wrote about the sun, and how much she missed it, her classmates all did the worst thing. They looked at Margot and called her a liar, and shoved her into a closet “They surged about her up and bore her, protesting, and then pleading, and crying back, into a tunnel, a room, a closet, where they slammed and locked the door” (3). This perfectly shows how badly they bullied her, and the classmates don’t even give her a chance to explain herself. Instead they shove her into a
