Academic Dishonesty

I have only one thing to say:  until the Administrators get the balls to back teachers up for flunking students who cheat, we’re teaching students that our standards are hypocritical blah-blah bullshit, and that the rules are a game meant to be played, rather than observed.

    DId the administration seriously not back a teacher up for flunking a student who cheated? Jeez, and I thought the no plagiarism/no cheating policies at colleges and universities were the one things that were carved in stone across the board…. That an administration wouldn’t enforce that policy in particular is pretty disheartening.

    Ah…makes me pine for the old days of “A cadet will not lie, cheat, steal, or tolerate those who do.”
    And yet the rest of the world lies, cheats, steals, and tolerates those who do….and sadly those best at it know its all a game and do very very well in the real world. Go figure.

    The UT system actually sends out letter telling you to act so to encourage retention… thro not yet in the sciences.

    ooops…however we haven’t gotten to that yet. Unless of course its a minority student or a woman or a muslim…then flunking them is harassment.

    Yeah, been there, seen that… I’ve already been threatened with a harassment referral for daring to critique a non-white-male student’s work.
