Hundreds expelled in India for cheating

Post by trailblaze » Fri Mar 20, 2015 1:02 pm

About 600 high school students in eastern India have been expelled for cheating on pressure-packed 10th grade examinations this week, education authorities said Friday.

The incident has received widespread attention after Indian television footage showed parents and friends of students scaling the outer walls of school buildings to pass cheat sheets to students inside taking exams. More than 1.4 million Grade 10 students are taking the tests at more than 1,200 high schools across the state. They face tremendous pressure because they must pass the exams to continue their education.

600 of 1.4 million out, but I would bet a lot more got away with it and few were honest enough to study and honestly take the exams. Maybe it's time for the Education
department to finally deal with this before someone gets killed. Climbing 3 stories or more to help someone cheat is dangerous, reckless and just plain stupid.
