Children's Social Values: An Action Research Study

CHAPTER 6
Considerateness and Aggression

THE ROMANTIC notion of childhood, that children enter the world "trailing clouds of glory," that the innocence of children is equivalent to virtue, beguiles many people. Indeed, it is rooted deep in our culture. The idea that sweetness, kindness, or considerateness must be learned by children is hard to accept--unless one deals with children constantly! Even then, the idea that children are often inconsiderate, unkind, even cruel to one another is distressing. But it is so.

Some of us in Springfield, having been distressed by inconsiderateness among children and high school youth, sought ways of studying the matter.1

The staff of the York Elementary School (11 teachers, 346 children), and varying groups from the staff of Springfield Senior High School (between 10 and 35 teachers, out of a total staff of appprorimately. 70) was involved in the activities reported in this chapter. The "we" of this chapter refers to members of these staffs, and the three institute consultants, who worked with the school staffs at different times.

The material that follows was gathered chiefly in the elementary school. We shall report only a small part of the work done in the high school, because circumstances made it impossible for us to bring more than a small portion of our work there to the kind of fruition that would make a report possible.
