  2. 2. Cheating <br />Throughout the United States and even noticed in today’s world, cheating is on the rise in young teenage and college students.<br />It is important that steps and procedures are taken to reduce the probability of these impulses from succeeding.<br />It is important that students understand discipline and the proper way to go about succeeding.<br />

  4. 4. How Many Students Admit To Cheating?<br />As studied by Barbara Pytel, nearly 75% of students at Duke University admitted to cheating and around 90% of students admit to copying papers.<br />Not only is this taking place at colleges and universities, but also students under high pressure in elite high schools are cheating. They believe that the only way to succeed is to do well in school, so they resort to anything they can. <br />
  5. 5. Excelled College Students Cheating <br />Denise Pope, adjunct professor in the School of Education at Stanford University says, "Nationally, 75 percent of all high school students cheat. But the ones who cheat more are the ones who have the most to lose, which is the honors and AP students. Eighty percent of honors and AP students cheat on a regular basis." [Regan McMahan, San Francisco Gate.com, sfgate.com, September 9, 2007] <br />
  6. 6. Cheating Athletes? <br />According to a survey taken in 2005 – 2006 by Regan McMahan of San Francisco, nearly 5,300 student athletes were asked to admit to cheating. 65% of them admitted to it. This is higher than the 60% of non-athletes who had admitted to cheating.<br />The likely hood of student-athletes cheating is due to the required minimum GPA that must be met in order to stay eligible.<br />

  8. 8. Impact On Education<br />Cheating not only makes you a dishonest person, but most likely a failure later in life.<br />A student may be able to cheat his or her way through all of their homework, but once it becomes exam time, the individual is doomed.<br />It doesn’t stop at exam time either. Once the student enters the real world and must rely on self responsibility and the ability to do work alone if need be.<br />
  9. 9. Impact On Education<br />If an individual is yet to develop qualities in college such as self discipline, tenacity, and forthrightness, qualities that are lacked if you are a cheater, then it is unlikely that the student will be successful in the working world.<br />Cheating in school can also be an insult to the teacher, who is trying the best they can to further education and spread knowledge.<br />

  11. 11. Steps Taken To Reduce Cheating<br />First and foremost the only true way to break cheating is to be committed to stopping all together<br />Teachers today are encouraged to offer extra times after class to help students and explain in greater detail, whether they may actually need it or not.<br />Even though studying takes time away from a students social life, they must understand that in the real world work responsibilities will do the same.<br />
  12. 12. Steps Taken To Reduce Cheating<br />A very common activity you now see all over college campuses is what is known as study sessions. Although these have been introduced many of years ago, a more formal, organized style of study sessions are taking place. One where the professor, on his or her own time are showing up to further the students knowledge and understanding of the material being covered.<br />

  14. 14. Cheating In Today’s Schools And How It Is Being Handled<br />Throughout our schools cheating is a major factor that is under the radar, yet one of the largest known problems.<br />Cheating only displays dishonesty and low respect towards the teachers and what they are trying to do.<br />Steps are being played into effect in every school each year as cheating rises, and school officials are cracking down on the problem.<br />
