Theme Three: The book questions whether people are born innately good or evil.Evidence One: Tom Robinson and Boo Radley are both innately good, and are destroyed by the evil that exists in Maycomb.Evidence Two: Scout and Jem represent the child like innoncence, and idea that people are born innately good... it just maters how they are nutured.

To Kill a Mockingbirdby Harper Lee

Theme One : The adults in a child's life impact the character of a child - either moral or immoral.Evidence One: Atticus in the book devotes himself to helping his children become more socially aware or conscientious.Evidence Two: The teachers in Scout's school are actually unsympathetic to children's needs and to society's needs. Scout recognizes this and expresses frustration at their lack of empathy. Miss Caroline, their teacher, is often to qucik to just follow what she has been taught rather than adjust to the needs of her students.
