Description - The Values Debate by Revd Canon Leslie J. Francis
The Values Debate: A Voice from the Pupils presents findings from a survey conducted among 30,000 13-15 year olds throughout England and Wales, giving particular attention to social, personal and moral issues. The analysis begins with an overview of what teenagers really think. What are their views on sex, family, AIDS and homosexuality? What stand do they take on tobacco, alcohol and drugs? What values do they hold on pollution, poverty and responsibility for the developing world? What value do they place on themselves and on their future lives? The analysis then examines the factors which shape these fundamental values. How do values differ between male and female teenagers? What difference does social class make? How important is the family? Does religion continue to play a part? Does private schooling shape a different set of values? How important is the experience of being bullied at school? This analysis needs to be taken seriously by politicians, teachers, youth leaders, social workers, doctors, clergy and parents, and by all who are professionally or personally concerned with young people.
