为了克服这一挑战，教育学生重视自己而不是公众价值是很重要的(Wilson, 2000)。教师和学校将面临挑战，向学生灌输高度自尊和自信的精神，以防止不满和排斥。这将超越学科知识;它将发展个人技能和特性，为年轻人提供终身技能。这种理念已经嵌入到“卓越课程”的四种能力中;培养成功的学习者、自信的个人、负责任的公民和有效的贡献者。2010年;2010 b)。苏格兰政府提出，在这些原则的基础上教育年轻人将为所有人发展一个更强大的社会。这一新的发展将影响整个教学行业;随着教师发展新的技能和教学策略来加强CfE的四种能力。新CfE的开始将给教师带来另一个挑战。
To overcome this challenge, it is important that institutions educate pupils to value themselves rather than their public merits (Wilson, 2000). Teachers and schools will be faced with the challenge of instilling an ethos of high self-esteem and self-confidence in pupils to discourage disaffection and exclusion. This will go beyond subject knowledge; it will develop personal skills and attributes which will provide young people with life-long skills. This philosophy has been embedded in the ‘Curriculum for Excellence’ four capacities; to develop young people that are successful learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens and effective contributors (CfE) (LTS, n.d., and Scottish Government 2010a; 2010b). The Scottish Government proposes that educating young people based on these principles will develop a stronger society for all. This new development will affect the teaching profession as a whole; as teachers develop new skills and teaching strategies to enforce the CfE four capacities. The onset of the new CfE will exert another challenge for teachers.
