Moral issues should be taught in public schools. The children of the United States of America are not getting the morals taught to them that will benefit society. Over forty percent of American teens will become pregnant by the age of 18 (Statistics on Adolescent Pregnancy). In 2003, seventeen percent of teens tried to commit suicide (Child Trends Databank). In 1994 over 2.7 million juveniles were arrested and that number is increasing as the years progress (The Brookings Institute). With these enormously high percentages it is obvious that there is a crisis in the United States and that morals must be taught in the public school systems. The role that the public schools play in teaching morals is controversial. Many people think that religion must be brought in and is a violation of the constitution to have religion taught in schools. It is possible however that the morals that religion introduces be taught in the public school system. Take for instance; do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
