Echo Shan: An honesty crisis has hit Chinese fledglings

From China Daily:

An honesty crisis has hit Chinese fledglings as they find an honest quality hardly leads to any benefits. A recent survey polled a total of 700 middle school students, aged from 12 to 16, and found that nearly 90 percent bypass honesty for the sake of interests.

Conducted by a district educational committee in Southwest China’s Chongqing Municipality, the survey results has shocked the public as the Chinese younger generation has grown so pragmatic that self benefits easily trump the quality of honesty, which has been long preserved by Chinese as one of their traditional core values.
