Enhancing Children's Self-Esteem: Illusion and Possibility.
Beane, James A.
Early Education and Development, v2 n2 p153-60 Apr 1991
Current efforts to enhance children's self-esteem are critiqued, and an alternative direction is proposed that is based on the notion of self-esteem as a crucial aspect of human dignity. This approach connects self-esteem to both cultural and social conditions and works toward the reconstruction of school and society. (LB)
