Summary

This study examined relationships between self-esteem, depression, and race in 70 learning disabled high school students (39 white and 31 black). Subjects were administered the Coopersmith Self Esteem Inventory and the Children's Depression Inventory. Statistical analysis indicated a significant sex by race interaction. Both white females and black males reported significantly higher levels of self-esteem than did black females. Results indicated that, overall, white females and black males reported higher self-esteem and lower depression than white males and black females. These results differ from those usually reported, possibly due to this study's use of a learning disabled population. Results also suggest that there may be significant differences between and among various subgroups within each exceptionality in the areas of self-reported depression and self-esteem.
