A Los Angeles-based ethics institute asked thousands of teenagers if they had lied or cheated in the past year.
The results? 30 percent of high school students have stolen from a store, and 64 percent have cheated on a test.
The anonymous survey found that more than a third of the boys, and just under a third of the girls shoplifted. Almost a quarter admitted to stealing from a parent or relative, and 36 percent said they had plagiarized from the internet.
Nevertheless, when asked if they were comfortable with their ethical standards, 93 percent said they were satisfied.
