Okay, it's a deal.
Scout, I'll make you a deal. If you go to school, we can continue reading every night.

Scout, go stand in the corner until you can behave.
The scene supports the theme of the importance of education because it shows how much Scout values her father and how he educates her. She doesn't want him to stop reading to her at night. Scout says on page 41, "But if I keep on goin' to school, we can't ever read anymore...".
This is the scene in which Cecil Jacobs tells the class how Hitler has been persecuting the Jews. In current events class, the children are all supposed to bring in news articles. This supports the theme because it shows how even in the 1930s the teacher wanted the children to learn about what was going on in the news at the time. p 325,326
"Before the first morning was over, Miss Caroline Fisher, our teacher, hauled me up to the front of the room and patted the palm of my hand with a ruler, then made me stand in the corner of the room until noon." This has to do with the theme of education because Miss Caroline obviously has some very interesting teaching tactic. She changes the teaching aesthetic the school has and does not understand small town life.
