Moral lows in high schools

Has this world been turned upside down?  A Josephson Institute survey (http://charactercounts NULL.org/programs/reportcard/index NULL.html) of 29,760 high school students reveals that

  • 30% admit to having stolen from a store during the past year
  • 64% admit to having cheated on a test during the past year and
  • 83% admit that they “sometimes lie to a parent about something significant” 

And yet, 93% say they are satisfied with their own personal ethics and character, and 77% said that “when it comes to doing what is right, I am better than most people I know.”  How could this be, and what can we do about it? 

 

Chief Justice Roy Moore addresses this problem in his latest Worldnetdaily column, New Ethical Lows in High Schools (http://www NULL.worldnetdaily NULL.com/index NULL.php?fa=PAGE NULL.view&pageId=83207).
