Though self-esteem is not considered either a positive or negative factor in school performance, acting to boost self-esteem will strengthen other factors of success, which will subsequently help youth develop a sense of capability in difficult situations and have confidence in their abilities. It is therefore advantageous to take self-esteem into account, especially with respect to school work, when taking action to improve young people’s school performance and school perseverance.
Courses of effective action
- Guide parents in fostering the development of their children’s self-esteem.
- Implement activities outside the school that promote student success at school.
