Segregation has been a problem for quite some time, and it has trickled down from generation to generation, influencing younger and younger children every day. The problems the teenagers were facing in this book, The Freedom Writers Diary, were simply because of the segregation they were either taught or learned from the people around them. With the help of Ms. Gruwell, these teenagers became more open-minded about their peers and realized they needed an education.
