This reminds me of the last fad - the 'self esteem at all costs' philosophy. Can't fail the kids, because it'll hurt their self esteem. Can't have them playing competitive games, because losing hurts their self esteem. Can't grade them, can't criticise them, must maintain their self esteem at all costs.

Now they're finding out that we raised a generation of people with great self-esteem - but for no reason. So they've become a bunch of obnoxious selfish snots, who think they're great at everything. Gee, who saw that coming?

NOTE TO POTENTIAL FLAMERS: Obviously, this does not mean YOU. You bucked the odds, and are truly worthy of our praise.
