I laughed at this Doonesbury cartoon last week, thinking that the self-esteem movement was long gone.
But then on Saturday, I saw these posters at the Byron, MN Middle School, praising Melissa and Avery for their "outstanding participation" as musicians of the week. (Notice how I’ve redacted their last names from the photos of the posters. I’d hate to have their self-esteem damaged by this blog post.)
Do any Northfield area educators still do this type of stuff?
