Or blame parents? Or blame The Culture? I think it is interesting and not surprising that a survey would find a decline in empathy among college students, and other generations as well, as reported by Stephanie Steinberg in USA Today. This is depressing, as empathy is the most important thing we can teach our children. This piece just reminds me how much more journalism I would like to see about the inner lives of kids.
Of course, that is a small obsession of mine. It’s not really on the radar of media organizations anymore.
