Summary

"Shortchanging Girls, Shortchanging America," a report about the interrelationships among self-esteem, education, and career aspirations in adolescent girls and boys in today's society, received widespread attention on its release. The American Association of University Women asked the Academy for Educational Development to review the data gathered by Greenberg-Lake (the analysis group for the original report) and focus primarily on the 290 Latinas, aged 9 to 15 years, in the nationally representative sample of 2,399 young females. Review of the data suggests that: (1) an ethnic and racial gap in the self-esteem of girls increases with age; (2) the sense of self-value in the family declines for older Latina adolescents; (3) low academic pride is a factor in the low level of Latina self-esteem; and (4) teachers often neglect the opportunity to positively affect the self-esteem of their female students, especially Latinas. Lowering of aspirations occurs with the lowering of self-esteem experienced by Latina adolescents. Results indicate that Latinas are likely to find less support at home or in school than other young women growing up in U.S. society. (Contains 16 tables, 13 figures, and 7 references.) (SLD)
