Abstract: In our society each individual is usually regarded as a unique entity. No one else has ever been exactly the same as any other person, or ever will be. "Even though self-images are constantly changing and are never twice exactly the same, one has no difficulty in recognizing himself." (31:214) It follows from this that each individual will therefore have a unique conception of himself, and although this conception remains fairly constant and stable, it may fluctuate to a degree in relation to the various social situations of which the individual may be a part. One of the primary social institutions with which the individual is in daily contact is the school. Since it is the purpose of education to enable all students to grow to their fullest potential this purpose would be most effectively achieved in a setting congenial to each and every individual. This would enable, theoretically, the students to develop concepts of themselves which would probably be more positive than negative, and which would foster good performance in their learning situations.
