Dr. Keith: High School Ethics - Honesty is Out [64% of high school students admit to cheating]

A startling new study from the Josephson Institute, an ethics think tank in Los Angeles, reveals that 64 percent of today’s high school students report having cheated on a test in the past year, while 30 percent have stolen from a store.This data comes from an extensive survey the Josephson Institute conducted of 29,760 students at 100 randomly selected high schools across the nation. Since students answered the questions anonymously, they presumably had less reason to lie on the survey than they do to lie, cheat or steal in class or in malls.
