The Comparative Structure of Self-Esteem in British and Indian Adolescents
A major purpose of school curriculum according to Jeffcoate’s analysis (1976) is the achievement of two broad affective goals, respect for others and respect for self. How this is to be achieved, however, is a matter of controversy, and it is clear that the school both as it reflects the symbolic stereotyping and the stratification systems of the wider society, and as it imposes hierarchies and reference systems of its own, may have a significant negative effect on both pupil self-concept and respect for others (Bagley et al., 1979c).
