There is just one long lunch period compared to the two short breaks you have in middle school. This may take time to get used to, but its better since you have time for everything in one whole period. You can even go out somewhere far during lunch and be back to school on time.

You get more freedom in high school compared to middle school.
Gerald belongs to the higher class along with his parents the Crofts. They refused to come to a celebratory dinner with the Birling’s as they felt that Gerald was going to marry below his class.

Mrs Birling specifically is all about her image.

It is hard raising kids and hurtful things can be said, but I just don’t think a parent should react in a hurtful manner.
