Cheating can become contagious by Betty Yarmon hear at the family dinner 6 the failure of adults to these Are some of i by Betty Yarmon women a news service new York i was if the current cheating scandal at West Point succeeds in bringing on a National debate Over the general subject of cheating it will have been All to the Good. We Are told that the heating is widespread throughout our educational system that this in turn is merely a reflection of american life today and that there is really not much that can be done to step it. Why is cheating rampant in our schools and colleges a several reasons Are offered parents and teachers place so much pressure on students to get Good Marks that the children respond in this almost frantic Way. Beyond that of course Good grades do have wide currency in the sense that they help get Young people into prestige colleges which Iii turn can mean better jobs upon graduation Many students Are believed to be simply too Lazy to do their Homework and cheating becomes a More than adequate substitute for preparation for exams others cheat not necessarily because they Are too Lazy to do their Homework but because they want to get on to More attractive spar time activities sports to general socialization c heating is contagious and Many students cheat just because everyone around seems to be doing the same there is a practical Side to this the student who sees so much cheating around Hun teels to gives himself an unfair Handicap if he stays honest during an exam while All others Are cheating educators who Are concerned a flout this widespread cheating in our schools often comment that the society around our cheating children in effect teaches them to act this Way. They Hunt to any number of situations in life where cheating is quite visible i probably most widespread is in the income tax area it is the rare american child who does not hear at the family dinner table How a Parent is cheating on his income tax 2 there Are other common violations of governmental regulation at All Levels driving beyond the Speed limit falsifying welfare and other records to get exaggerated benefits and a Host of others. 3 exaggerates or false insurance claims Are by no Means unusual 4 families on vacation trips when they depart.

Which again seems to affect All Levels of american society. These Are some of the dimensions of the cheating that Young people see All about them adding up to an atmosphere in which their own cheating seems to be almost justifiable. Maybe cheating is too ingrained in american life for it to be easily eliminated a even by a widely publicized scandal at its most notable service Academy some commentators say that cheating is As american As Apple pie a and they Are not impressed by the argument that the citizenry of other countries May be even worse.
