Does the moral judgement of some individuals worsen with age and education?

Psychologist Lawarence Kohlberg clamis that moral judgement tends to improve with age and education. He identifies moral improvement as "progrssive internalization and generalization by an individual of the ethical references which guide that individual conduct"
