Academic Cheating Series announcement
According to the Plagiarism Organization, 59% of high school students—43,000 surveyed in total—admit to cheating on a test. That’s 59 in every 100 students and, given that FHC has roughly 1,200 students, that 59% translates to about at least 708 students in this school cheating on a test at least once. Those are just global generalizations, but it’s something known to the entire student body. Teachers dictate the policy of zero points, zero credit, zero tolerance in regard to cheating. Whether it is on tests or assignments, it is not accepted. However, whether cheating still persists and lives on in the halls of FHC is what this month’s series is determined to discover.
