Are Forty Percent of Our Children Really Unsatisfactory?
Hedges, William D.
Clearing House, 50, 9, 417-22, May 77
One of the most subtle but viciously effective cultural mechanisms for harming children in the United States is the persistent confusion between norms and standards. Investigates what can be done to prevent unrealistic and invidious labeling of children during their most vulberable years if their growth curve in achievement or some other factor departs from the mean or average.
