  2. In A Wind in the Door, Charles Wallace is tormented by his classmates. Meg says, "It's not right in the United States of America that a little kid shouldn't be safe in school." Discuss the safety issues facing public schools today, for example bullying, weapons, gangs, etc. How are these issues considered "evil" forces?
