American Teens Lie, Cheat & Steal

Chuck Colson, Breakpoint by: Khaila Evans


An important quote from this article is where the author includes in 2008 The Report Card on Ethics of American Youth says that "result paint a troubling picture of our future politicians and parents, cops and corporate executives, and journalist and generals."

I think this is important to the article because, it is foreshadowing what the article will be about and it is also telling us what the public thinks about our generation.

Teens are "satisfied with their personal ethics." this quote is startling because when you look at the way the teens are perceived in this article is not something that most people would be proud of.
