Why has Harper Lee included "Scout" as a main character?

Student Response:

Harper Lee included "Scout" as a main character because she is the one telling the story from her perspective so she is very important. Another factor is that "Scout" is the one who says it how it is and is very blunt, even though she means no harm.

Chapter 15:page:129:

"Hey, Mr.Cunningham. How's your entailment gettin' along?"

'He seemed uncomfortable; he cleared his throat and looked away. My friendly overture had fallen flat.'

"What's the matter?"
