Moral and Faith Development in Seventeen-year Old Students.
Subjects were 50 17 year-old students from a variety of types of schools (parochial, private, public) in two New England areas were interviewed for moral and faith development according to the theories of Kohlberg and Fowler. Socioeconomic level and IQ were highly correlated with faith and moral scores. Experiences of the death of someone close and/or of life styles and perspectives different from one's own (often missing in the lives of adolescents in the suburbs) seem to foster role-taking, an important element in both faith and moral development. Implications for education are discussed. (Author)
