Initially, Rodwell may have joined the war with noble intentions, but by the time Robert meets him, he has already began to take note of the dehumanizing nature of war, which begins his long descent into misery. Rodwells initial willingness to see the best in a situation blinds him to the cruelty and misery of warfare. As an illustrator of children’s books, Rodwell is well accustomed to fairy tale stories, but chooses instead to draw in a more realistic manner. He says, “ I should draw that toad, for instance, just as he is without embellishment. In his own right, you know, he has a great deal of character.” This choice indicates that Rodwell is not as naive as one might assume he is.
(1981) was done to back up the empathy-altruism model. The scientist asked a classroom of students to watch a video about another student named Carol, who had broken bother her legs and is not having a very easy time catching up to her peers in terms of school work. The students were broken up into two groups labelled the high empathy group and the low empathy group.

Instead a teacher should go more in depth of what he was fighting for, his background, and how exactly he made his mark on the world. Another reason schools should inform children better is because, as I said before, bullying. Millions of students are bullied, whether it be how they look, how they talk, or their ethnicities.

Indirectly, colonialism still affects Irie—whether through her desperate attempts to straighten her hair or even the school she attends.

His condition, despised by the society, means that even the school system won’t work for him. The same views he gets from the society are the same ones he will find in school. As such, he is confined to staying at home with his family. In a society where such points of view are well embedded, it is hard for a child to school. Unless the communities adjust and accept the individual’s conditions, there will never be any chance for such and individual to be integrated into it.
His experiences of when he returned to the school for a visit are also enough to substantiate his thesis because he witnessed the “black table” still there.
