This talk provides an overview of the parts of my research programs on self-control and self-esteem that are relevant to secondary education. Self-control improves intelligent thought, socially desirable behavior, decision making, and other useful things. Self-esteem is correlated with many outcomes, but evidence suggests self-esteem is more a result than a cause. Educators should forget about self-esteem and concentrate on self-control.
