Surveyed urban high school seniors regarding the balance between civility and incivility. Students were more polite than rude toward teachers (though they cursed frequently); more polite toward teachers than students; much more likely to curse around students than teachers; and, in their own opinions, capable of being polite or crude. Cursing at teachers depended on the people and situations involved. (SM)
