Losing Faith in Self-Esteem.
Colvin, Richard
School Administrator, v57 n2 p28-29,31-33 Feb 2000
Researchers have found no stable relationship between self-esteem and academic achievement or other desirable behaviors. In psychological studies, the most self-assured subjects were more likely to want to harm someone. Healthy self-esteem comes from achievement. Schools should support and promote accomplishment over "feel-good" activities. (MLH)
