Abstract

This study examines self-evaluation of Jamaican subjects with reference to the criteria of colour and class. It seeks to investigate self-esteem and self-disparity among Jamaican high school students of different colour and classes. In addition, it looks at levels of manifest anxiety among these students, and teachers' perception of them. The sample consisted of 721 girls, randomly selected from seven girls' high schools in Kingston. Self-esteem was measured by a general self-concept rating scale. The data obtained gave general support to the assertion that Jamaican high school girls evaluate self according to certain socio-economic and colour criteria
