The Pushout - A Kaleidoscopic Personality.
Bluhm, Harry P.
An attempt has been made in this paper to show that the pushout is a complex person, that he has a kaleidoscopic personality, presenting no one image to his peers, his parents, his teachers or his prospective employer. He means many things to many people. If we are dedicated to helping all students succeed optimally, it behooves us to understand the characteristics of the pushout. This necessitates that we see him through his own eyes: (1) he has a poor self-image; (2) he sees himself as a failure. In order to help him to acquire a better self-image, answers must be found to several questions: (1) how can we avoid alienating these students? (2) what makes an educated person? and (3) how can we enhance the self-concept of academic ability of the pushout? The challenge to educators is to create a new image of the pushout, an image which hopefully results in a self-concept of adequacy. (KJ)
