Self Esteem Task Force

FEATURED ARTICLES
OPINION
March 29, 1987
As a member of the California Task Force on Self-Esteem and Personal and Social Responsibility, I have been following with some amusement the series of Doonesbury cartoons by Garry Trudeau. While I am perfectly able and willing to be the subject of good-natured humor, I worry that this one-sided point of view obscures the intent of the legislation. This is not just another crazy California idea. It is, in fact, a very serious attempt to understand personal and social responsibility as it is shaped by factors of self-esteem.

After three years of praise and potshots, most notoriously from Garry Trudeau's satirical "Doonesbury" cartoons, the California Task Force to Promote Self-Esteem and Personal and Social Responsibility is about to drain its hot tubs and go home. As mandated by law, Assemblyman John Vasconcellos' 25-member, $735,000 "scouting party" for the rest of California officially goes out of business on June 30. But that won't be the last of this politicized incarnation of the human potential movement.

It may be the rage throughout the rest of California, but there will be no Task Force to Promote Self-Esteem and Personal and Social Responsibility in San Diego County. At least not officially, anyway. A frustrated Supervisor Leon Williams, who had advocated the creation of a local group to augment the work of the well-publicized 25-member statewide task force commissioned by the legislature, withdrew the proposal Tuesday because it was clear there was no support for it among his colleagues.

I was pleased to read your article. It seems the money and time spent were well worth it if the recommendations are taken to heart. However, I was surprised. The next thing you'll be telling us is the "horseless carriage" may have a future in California. I hope I'm ready as we approach the 21st Century. ROBERT NASH Oxnard
