cheating in IndiaPosted: 03/10/2012
Cheating does really happen around the globe, huh? IBN Live reported the following:
BHUBANESWAR: At least 27 candidates were caught cheating during the ongoing Plus Two examination on Tuesday. The flying squads of the Council of Higher Secondary Education (CHSE) booked the students from at least 16 colleges of the State. On Tuesday, students appeared for English subject in the Plus Two Science stream. The squads which made surprise checks found malpractice at 16 colleges, including Budhadeb Collage in Jajpur, CP College in Mayurbhanj and Dimiria College of Keonjhar. Stringent action will be taken against the colleges where malpractice is being encouraged, CHSE Chairman Nihar Ranjan Patnaik said.
But just because it’s happening everywhere does not mean that therefore it’s okay or that we just give up. One of the most common “arguments” people make about ignoring cheating is that “it’s human nature.” So what? Apparently hurting each other is human nature, too, but we don’t condone it – do we?
