The act of death conditioning provides children with personal experience and access to the death of a human being. The children play, eat, converse, and interact before and during the actual deaths of the room or person they're assigned to. I personally have no problem with children experiencing death under the right circumstances..... a close family member.... someone they love..... having prior knowledge of what death really is. Unfortunately, based upon the conditioning we see in the novel, the children learn to accept death as ordinary, which isn't surprising based upon the fact that do not love or have real families. The disrespect to the dying, on the other hand, is totally disgusting and lacking in any kind of empathy.
