... determinations and guide educators. In Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird novel, the values of education are antagonistic. Atticus, the father of the novel, is a person who accepts people as they are, does not judge them, makes sense, teaches them to their children. It is the novel that shows the answer to the question of how to be a good father, how to be a good man. Atticus is important in education; In his youth he spends his money on his brother's education and he is a lawyer himself. When communicating with their children, they treat them like adult individuals, always polite and neutral to them. For children growing up in a democratic environment, the most enjoyable activity of summer holidays is to play theater works with their friends. Atticus plays with the children at home, reads them books. This house is a house where you always read things like newspapers. So much so that the little girl, Scout, learned to read and write without going to school. The most important feature that distinguishes Atticus and their children from the others is that they can empathize in the romance described by innocent straight-eyed children. Atticus does not just give advice to their children, but models them with life. This is an attitude that is missing in the education that parents want to give their children today. Young people who read this novel can direct themselves positively through educational values there. Educators and parents who will read the novel can still benefit from the educational value of this novel.
