Is Miss Caroline a victim or a villain?

Miss Caroline is a villain because she is inflexible and thus, straight minded. She thinks that there is a fix way to learn and others should not teach their children, anything in advance. She also only does what she thinks is correct and she will not listen to others. For instance, in the passage, it states that 'You tell him I'll take over from here and try to undo the damage' and ' "I've had about enough of you this morning," she said. "You're starting off on the wrong foot in every way, my dear." ' Thus, it can be seen that even though what Scout says are true, Miss Caroline does not believe Scout and even scolded him. Despite the fact that Miss Caroline is not familiar with Maycomb and the people living in Maycomb, Miss Caroline did not take the initiative to learn their culture and way of living. She will also not find out the truth before accussing people. Hence, Miss Caroline is inflexible and straight minded as she does not know how to change her mind.
