3.0 out of 5 stars Not without flaws, but still a contribution, May 14, 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: How Schools Shortchange Girls: The AAUW Report : A Study of Major Findings on Girls and Education (Paperback)
Self-esteem and school performance are often correlated. Teenagers who have high self-esteem are more likely to well in school than those who don't. In fact, academic self esteem is considered a component of general self-esteem (Harter, 1987). It is not clear how these are related; perhaps success in school makes a teenager feel better about him/herself. The data collected in the AAUW study are readily available on disk for any interested researcher. Although this book has a number of flaws, it makes a contribution to knowledge about today's teenagers in the US.
