To Kill A Mockingbird Summary of Chapter 26
Jem begins his first year of high school and Scout starts the third grade. The class talks about Hitler. Scout's teacher explains how horrible it is the way Hitler treats the Jews. But Scout cannot understand her teacher's position. Scout sees the teacher's attitudes towards Tom as the same thing as Hitler's attitudes towards Jews.
After school, Scout asks Jem about this discrepancy, but the discussion only angers Jem.
