Summary

High school students were measured on the degree to which they hold views which favor a civil libertarian position, and the extent to which these views appeared to be influenced by the social attributes of the people involved. From nine schools in the Portland metropolitan area, 3,066 seniors responded to a self-administered questionnaire. The questionnaire gathered a variety of data about the social background and social psychological characteristics of the students as well as assessing civil libertarian attitudes by using descriptions of cases and situations, each involving a constitutional question. The resulting data, reported in chaper 1, indicate that although the students favor a civil libertarian position in extending civil rights, they were often unfair, being influenced by the personal and social attributes of the people involved. Chapters 2 and 3 describe the extent to which civil libertarian dispositions are effected by social and educational background factors such as sex, social class, religion, academic achievement, and school environment and by the value orientations of the students. The survey appeared to demonstrate that schools were not producing a high degree of concensus about constitutionally protected freedoms in a number of critical areas. (cg)
