One in four teens say cheating on a test is OK
While 71% of 13- to 18-year-olds say they're ready to make ethical decisions, at least 24% said cheating on a test was acceptable and 38% said cheating, lying or violence may be necessary for success, according to the fifth Teen Ethics Survey. These attitudes point to more than a need for further ethics training at school.
