Fairfax County students don't feel bad about cheating

An ethics survey of Fairfax County students found that nearly all sixth graders are naïve and opposed to cheating, and more than half of high school seniors have learned that cheating is easier than studying. We wonder where they got that idea.


Guess where we stole this from?

When asked if cheating was okay, 97 percent of sixth graders said no, but only 61 percent of twelfth graders did the same. The trend is similar when it comes to being honest with parents. We'll pretend to be shocked and appalled that anyone would piggyback off someone else's work, but, in reality, the survey puts numbers to what everyone already knows: You get smarter with age.
