Kohlberg was the one to make the levels. So in the story Scout has a level 2 moral development due to the way that she acts and due to how much she understands things. Level 2 moral development means that Scout is good at “maintaining the social order” in the town of Maycomb (McLeod). This level is used to show that Scout knows how to obey the laws and rules to stay out of trouble and she is pretty good at doing this because she thinks about what Atticus would do in a certain situation. This is important because it shows you how Scout has came from level one and how she has landed in level 2 due to her understanding of the rules of her town of Maycomb. And this level is pretty good for a kid at her age to have because now some kids are at her level but they are older than her and so she is doing just fine at the level she is at now.
