Synopsis

Being Fair and Honest by Tara Koellhoffer

Studies show that many people do not think it is wrong to be deceitful or to cheat to get ahead in school or at work. What does all this dishonesty do to individuals and our society at large? Being Fair and Honest examines how lies and cheating hurt people's lives, and stresses the importance of justice and honesty in creating a society that treats people well and provides them with the opportunities they need to succeed. History and current events topics covered include: child labor in the industrial age; drug testing in sports; freedom of speech; honesty of scientific studies; laws to protect the disabled; people who have found and returned large sums of money; Plessy v. Ferguson; racial profiling; The Trail of Tears; and, why people steal.
