Scout loves learning and wants to go to school to show off her skills in reading and to learn more.

She is shamed by her teacher who doesn't like the fact that Scout already knows how to read, and who tells her that Atticus has no business teaching people.

Scout loves to improve her mind, and she has always been ahead of others in terms of academics, due largely to her fathers tutoring. Scout has a proactive nature, and knows that knowledge is important. Her father is a learned man-and Scout wishes to be like him, in the end.
