Poor Scout. She was so excited about attending her first day of school, but by the end of the evening, she was begging Atticus not to go the next day. Her first "crime" was already knowing how to read. Miss Caroline quickly decided thatĀ Atticus "does not know how to teach" and demanded that Scout tell him "not to teach you anymore." Later that day, she had her hand spanked with Miss Caroline's ruler for defending Walter Cunningham Jr., and then she rubbed Walter's nose in the dirt in retribution. Luckily, Atticus promised that the two would continue reading just as before, and Scout returned to school the next day.
