Description:

This paper reviews and summarizes a seminal article on peer-rejection in the school setting, entitled "Peer Exclusion and Victimization: Processes That Mediate the Relation Between Peer Group Rejection and Children's Classroom Engagement and Achievement?" by E.S. Buhs, et.al. The paper describes the article's findings on how peer rejection and exclusion impacts self-esteem as a child and in later life. The paper does critique the article for not providing an explanation as to how children develop liking or disliking for a particular child. The paper concludes by recommending other areas for future studies in the area of peer relationships and social rejection among children.

From the Paper:

"The article points to the missing dimension in research on peer relationships among children is the dearth of theorizing concerning the processes that bring about the negative impact of peer rejection to a child's participation in the school environment and achievement. To fill this theoretical gap, attempts have been made by scholars to come up with frameworks to possibly explain the mediating process between peer rejection/acceptance to children's participation and achievement in school. The article cursorily cites the work of seminal work of Coie (1991), which served as the point of reference for the earlier work of Buhs and Ladd, which put forward two intervening agencies to explain the impact of non-acceptance experienced by children from their peers to their academic accomplishment."
