Elementary School Teacher
There are two conflicts in The Outsiders. The first is an internal conflict as Ponyboy and his brothers fights for his soul. Ponyboy is so psychologically scarred by the Socs beating of Johnny that he is about to cross the line to becoming a murder, if given the opportunity, since he began carrying a switchblade. The second is an external conflict as the Greasers combat the Socs (rich social elite) for supremacy of dignity and worth.
