Like the title says, I want to find out about S. E. Hinton's report card when she was writing The Outsiders. All she really said about it was that she had a D in creative writing. Sorry, just a curious mind.

I have never spoken to S.E. Hinton about the subject. I think it would be a good one to broach when I talk to her next.

I can say, having been in a college creative writing class, that sometimes the teachers can't always appreciate a students writings skills or abilities. I once had a creative writing teacher tell me I should be writing novels. HUH?
Sometimes, a teacher can be intimidated by a student, who they perceive to a better writer than themselves. I can't answer the question completely, but these are just my own ideas.
