The Center for Academic Integrity (Duke University) reports that “on most campuses, over 75% of students admit to some cheating on tests. In a survey of 2,100 students on 21 campuses across the country, about one-third of the participating students admitted to serious test cheating.”
Some interesting pictures of students cheating on tests.
How to Prevent Cheating in the classroom:
Always be in control of the classroom. Being vigilant in the classroom is the best way to not only catch students cheating, but to prevent cheating from happening in the first place.
The first and worst of all frauds is to cheat oneself
- Philip James Bailey
He that will cheat at play, will cheat you any way
I would prefer even to fail with honor than to win by cheating

Have you ever experienced grading / marking like this?
Dept of Statistics: All grades are plotted along the normal bell curve.
Dept of Psychology: Students are asked to blot ink in their exam books, close them and turn them in. The prof opens the books and assigns the first grade that comes to mind.
Dept of History: All students get the same grade they got last year.
Dept of Religion: Grade is determined by God.
Dept of Philosophy: What is a grade?
Law School: Students are asked to defend their position of why they should receive an A.
Dept of Logic: If and only if the student is present for the final and the student has accumulated a passing grade then the student will receive an A else the student will not receive an A.
Dept of Computer Science: Random number generator determines grade.
Music Department: Each student must figure out his grade by listening to the instructor play the corresponding note (+ and – would be sharp and flat respectively).

Destroy teachers moral, decrease spending in poor performing schools, treat teacher librarians in a disgraceful manner (California), increase class sizes … When will the stupidity end?
When the people who make the decisions and have the power put their children in private schools, why should they care about Public Education? The sad answer is they don’t!
December 2011 Texas
Sandy Kress, an attorney in Austin
Kress says efficiency and accountability are crucial, but he worries even more that Texas will revert to the bad old days when school districts used tight budgets as an excuse for neglecting low-income and minority students.
“The result is that children will be left behind, gaps will grow again and we may be in a place where we are retreating instead of advancing for the first time in 50 years,” Kress says. “And this is disastrous.”
Already, the $4.3 billion in school funding cuts seems to have made the disparity between poor and wealthy school districts worse.
A poor district now gets $800 less per student from the state than a wealthy district. WHY??????????????????????
Ending tenure for new teachers and linking their job security and pay to how well students perform on assessment tests will destroy the PUBLIC school system in the United Staes.
Florida: A Bill, designed to do just that, introduced by Erik Fresen, cleared the Florida House of Representatives on Wednesday. Rick Scott, the new Governor strongly supports the bill.
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie claims teachers make too much money, are not effective and too difficult to fire. He wants to use merit pay and judge the value of teachers based on student test data. Vanderbilt University, in one of the first scientific studies of such a merit educational system, tested the theory by offering math teachers in Nashville, Tennessee, between $5,000-$15,000 if their students scored higher on a state-based examination. The results? It didn’t work, and the students didn’t score higher even with hefty incentives for the teachers. As the report concluded, “The experiment was intended to test the notion that rewarding teachers for improved scores would cause scores to rise. By and large, results did not confirm this hypothesis.”
Sadly, “This is the mother of all unfunded mandates,” said Representative Scott Randolph, an Orlando Democrat. “What kind of fuzzy math do we use to get there?”
I fear for the future of PUBLIC EDUCATION in California, Florida and many other States!
After being interviewed by the school administration, the prospective teacher said
‘Let me see if I’ve got this right.
‘You want me to go into that room with all those kids, correct their disruptive behavior, observe them for signs of abuse, monitor their dress habits, censor their T-shirt messages, and instill in them a love for learning.
‘You want me to check their backpacks for weapons, wage war on drugs and sexually transmitted diseases, and raise their sense of self esteem and personal pride.
‘You want me to teach them patriotism and good citizenship, sportsmanship and fair play, and how to register to vote, balance a checkbook, and apply for a job.
‘You want me to check their heads for lice, recognize signs of antisocial behavior, and make sure that they all pass the final exams
‘You also want me to provide them with an equal education regardless of their handicaps, and communicate regularly with their parents in English, Spanish or any other language, by letter, telephone, newsletter, and report card.
‘You want me to do all this with a piece of chalk, a blackboard, a bulletin board, a few books, a big smile, and a starting salary that qualifies me for food stamps.
-without support from many parents ( When I was a student, If I got in trouble at school I got in more trouble at home)
-with dwindling budgets and support
-with a great deal of stress
-with a huge workload
-with low status
-after 5 years of College or University Education
‘You want me to do all this and then you tell me. . .
I will not be able to have security (tenure) and have the threat of losing my job if students perform poorly on state, 0r federal tests (which are a waste of money and time).
Forget it! I think I’ll become a banker. Even if I destroy the savings of millions of people and really screw up, I can keep my job, collect huge bonuses and get a bailout from the Federal government.

How did Rick Scott become Governor? The more I read the more I am disgusted with him. I don’t live in Florida and I feel sick.
