The time where she might not be as likeable is when she told Scout,”…to tell [her] father not to teach [her] as it would interfere with [her] reading. “(Lee 12).

In “To Kill a Mockingbird”, Atticus allows Scout to be herself because Atticus realises that at this age, Scout becomes more of a tomboy. Despite other ladies picking on Scout to be more “ladylike”, Scout simply ignores their requests. Although Atticus listens to Aunt Alexandra’s nagging of making Scout more “ladylike” and getting her to “wear a dress”, Atticus does not do anything about it to solve it. Atticus does not care about how Scout looks. So, if Scout is concerned about wearing a dress, Atticus will not bother about it because it is up to her whether she wants to wear a dress or not.

Even though she risks getting trouble, she does it anyway; this is an excellent example
In “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Readers” by Kavitha Rao, she express her opinion on the topic that the current generation is not reading for fun. She mentions several experience she had with other people, that don 't see the benefit in reading for fun. She says that since people aren 't reading more leisure anymore they 're becoming less creative, inarticulate, have poor communication skills and low confidence, which is caused by parents forcing their kids to read, and the education system need to have students memorize textbooks and nothing else. After reading this article I find myself disagreeing with Rao on several points she made, I don’t believe the modern attitude towards reading is causing people to be self absorbed and unimaginative, she also claims that book clubs don 't encourage reading for fun, parents are forcing their children to read boring books which turned them away from reading and that the educational system is to blame for college students for being inarticulate.

At least no one listened to me. My teachers saw my lack of interest in pre-algebra to be a sign of disinterest in school as a whole. Parent-teacher conferences, taking away recess, and not even detention could fix the laziness inside of me for things like pre-algebra. All they saw was lost potential; to them I was a bright little girl with no motivation. But little did they know that I would be studying neuropsychology and doing research to develop a new form of art therapy in a few
Her teacher was always telling them “Over here we don’t believe in persecuting anybody. Persecution comes from people who are prejudiced. Prejudice,”(245) which shows her teacher is against persecution, then Scout over hears her teacher saying that it is good thing Tom Robinson was convicted because the blacks were getting too “high and mighty”.

The reasoning behind this was because Atticus believed Scout needed a female figure to look up to, other than Calpurnia. When Scout discusses bringing Walter-a Cunningham-home for dinner, Aunt Alexandra immediately disregards the idea.
