[Tutor] Accessing class attributes: use methods only?

Is it general good practice to access and set class attributes via
methods only, or is it okay practice to directly interact with class
attributes? The professor in a class on Perl that I'm taking suggested
that directly accessing and setting class attributes was a bad idea.
Just wondering what the current preference in Python is.

Many thanks,
