24 March 2005: Who's cheating? (3 of 4)

Though the answers to these questions would probably anger me further, I know that there are answers out there. I understand that somewhere, sometime, these decisions were made by individuals who thought they were being reasonable.

Of course, to me, the most important question also has the most disturbing answer: Who really pays the price in this system? Of course, it is the students.

So although technically it is taxpayer money that pays for public education, it is inarguably the students who pay when that education does not serve them.

Clearly, having an administrator change a few answers on a bubble sheet doesn't cause harm to a student. But there are two significant elements of this culture of cheating that we're operating under that have significant effects on student learning.

teaching quote of the day

Tell me and I forget. Show me and I remember. Involve me and I understand.
