Doing Bad and Feeling Good. The Self-Esteem Flimflam.
American Enterprise, v7 n5 p46-48 Sep-Oct 1996
Today's students need academic standards, not enhanced self-esteem. Even good schools are plagued by low standards and academic triviality. Since the 1960s, the trend has been away from authority and formal learning and toward individual liberation and free expression. The real price of this is being paid by children from disorganized or disadvantaged families. (SM)
