Because Renault has low self-esteem and feels little influence from his classmates, he refuses to sell chocolates “like every other kid in… school”(Cormier 66). He lacks the school spirit that others posses because he is excluded from them in his head. This reinforces Renault’s lack of influence felt as a result of others, and shows the fact that he is indeed alienated. In addition, after he refuses to sell the chocolates and is shunned by his classmates, “he [feels] invisible”(163). Jerry causes this himself, for his actions alone influence the entire student body to dissociate him from their ranks.

He complained about situations where meals were not provided and the teacher often had a short fuse and yelled. Teachers also did not teach him how to read, or read books aloud as teachers did in the US. The article also mentions that “Juan’s teacher also did not pay much attention when Juan did not understand instructions in Spanish or when she did not understand him.” Authentic Caring is a remedy for this situation that Juan is in. This theory explains that “treating students as full and complete human beings to learning into one’s educational framework.” (Cammerota & Romero) The opposite is “Aesthetic caring” where teachers see students as blank states that need to be inscribed with academic skills, and not as complete people with real-life problems.
