Hastings, William L.
Social Education, v50 n6 p453-57 Oct 1986
Presents results of survey of high school seniors taken in 1968 (N=825), 1972 (N=119), and 1984 (N=200). The survey consisted of 13 widely accepted attitudinal items and 16 demographic variables designed to measure degree of political cynicism and attitudes toward democracy. Concludes that 1984 results show a loss of innocence, increasing amorality, and loss of respect for minority rights. (JDH)
