  • Mood:


In a survey of  29,760 students at 100 randomly selected  public and private high schools nationwide, the survey discovered:

35% of the boys and 26% of the the girls claimed to have shoplifted.

20% claim to have stolen from a friend

23 % claim to have stolen from parent or other relative.

64 % claim to have cheated on a test
38% claim to have done this 2 or more times.

36% plagiarized with the internet

42% say they lie to save money

93% were satisfied with their personal ethics and character

77% say that when it comes to doing what's right, they are better than most people they know

(story here)

I do find the satisfaction with this being acceptable since so many say their behavior is better than their peers a rather interesting fact....
