Ethics vs. Morality: Should the Conflict Come to the Classroom?
Wynne, Edward A.
NASSP Bulletin, v74 n528 p38-44 Oct 1990

Very few adolescents can apply a conduct code requiring them to weigh refined issues, apply prudence, and display considerable self-control. Most lack the necessary maturity. Includes five references. (MLH)
