Cheating in our schools goes on every day. With cell phones that can directly access the Internet by Googling the questions, there is no need to fail any test. Or even a college entrance exam.
What kind of person would do this? Someone who does not have any self respect and would cheat themselves by this dishonest practice.
As a parent and grandparent, I find this unacceptable behavior and it needs to be stopped.
Do you allow your child to cheat? Do you even know if your child is cheating? We all need to pay better attention.
Cheating is rampant in our schools and a fact of life for many students. They have no misgivings about it, remorseful only if or when they get caught. They are hurting themselves by choosing to cheat this way. They are not learning, or obtaining a good education.
Cheating prevents them from growing into responsible educated adults.
I fear this is the wave of the future.
