you go, fulton!

This news makes me happy: “Fulton school board votes to strengthen cheating policy.”  Fulton County is in Atlanta, Georgia.

I particularly like this passage:

The revised cheating policy prohibits students from using the Web or cell phones to gain an unfair advantage in their school work. It also defines cheating as “fabricating data, signatures or resources, providing or receiving test questions in advance without permission and working collaboratively with other students when individual work is expected.”

I try to define “less than honest” to include all of the above. I think they should probably include something about the use of electronic translation devices in language courses as well as misrepresenting or misusing data (information) as forms of “less than honest” work.
