Ethical Values, Attitudes, and Behaviors in American Schools. A Report.
This book presents the findings of a study of the moral character of the U.S. generation in the 15 to 30 age group. The research results were from a comprehensive study of ethical attitudes and behaviors in the United States. During 1991 and 1992, a survey of nearly 9,000 young people and adults was conducted. Survey topics included value priorities and views about theft, lying, and cheating. Analysis of the data drew comparisons between generations. The report also explores the causes of ethical deterioration and possible solutions. Seven appendices are included: (1) an executive summary; (2) demographics; (3) data tables; (4) the Aspen Declaration; (5) a list of ethical do's and don'ts; (6) a discussion of six pillars of character; and (7) information about the Institute.
