Kids And Cursing--A Special Report

A recent AP/Ipsos poll suggests that a majority of Americans believe profanity, especially in public, is getting worse.
The poll states that 64 percent of people polled between the ages of 18 and 34 acknowledged that they swear in conversation at least a few times a week and in talking with students and teachers around the Grand Valley, the use of profanity in schools seems to be a common occurrence among teens as well.
Research by Gateways to a Better Education, a California-based company, shows that more than 35 percent of teachers believe that the use of curse words has become more prevalent in just the last five years alone.
Some teachers also suggest that while influences like music, television and movies have their role, the attitude towards foul language has simply become lax.
