Boy Scouts of America: New Study Reveals Youth Unprepared to Make Challenging Ethical Choices
IRVING, Texas, May 24 — A new Harris Interactive study shows that while many of today’s youth are unprepared to make moral and ethical decisions, Americans who participated in the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) are more likely to make the most ethical, but not always the easiest choices.
The Values of Americans – A Study of Ethics and Character, commissioned by the Boy Scouts of America, highlights the values held by society. The Values of Americans study is a follow-up to the 1995 Harris Interactive research The Values of Men and Boys in America and provides a comparison of current American values with those of ten years ago. The survey results reveal a clear picture of the values of American adults and youth.
