Is Miss Caroline a victim or a villain? I think that Miss Caroline is a villain. She has become a threat to Scout. Miss Caroline said, "We don't write in the first grade, we print. You won't learn to write until you are in third grade. Tell your father not to teach you anymore. I will take over from here and undo the damage." Miss Caroline have deprived Scout of her freedom to read despite of the fact that she cannot live without reading. Miss Caroline's perspective of an efficient education system involves everyone learning at the same time, strictly following a set of plans for various age groups. Thus, it irritates her when she knew that Scout already had a head-start by being literate. Miss Caroline's demand was totally unreasonable in Scout's eyes, thus, I conclude that Miss Caroline is a villain.
