Cheating is really a reflection on our society. Education is a huge investment and no one
wants to fail it costs too much money to fail. There are others who socialize and count
on cheating to make up for their lack of study. Others cheat cause everyone does it.
We are going to pay for this down the road. The moral fiber is slipping and the clouds are
going to spew acid and all hell is going to break loose.
The real problem is cheating has gone on since the beginning of time and partly why our
society is like all the others before
What was the question they asked? I don't know what the exactly what they asked in the study you are talking about, but often these studies ask things like "have you ever cheated" or "have you ever done anything dishonest". Does that number include people who admit to once copying an answer from a friend for a homework assignment, or are they implying that half of students are regularly doing stuff like bringing crib notes into exams?
well, there is a pretty big difference. Do you know what program this was on?
WHich is why things in general are so messed up. We put a bunch of clowns with diplomas in charge on the dubious bet that the degrees were earned. Rather than hiring people with experience that know of what they speak.
Even the politician that comes out with a really stupid statement probably had it written for him by a kid with a degree in political science.
