Has academic cheating become such a widespread issue that a special government commission should be formed to brainstorm methods to reduce it?

  • No responses have been submitted.
  • No, the government should not get involved in stopping academic cheating

    While academic cheating is a widespread problem and does need attention, it is not something that the government should be involved in. The government is stepping into too many non-political areas as it is and should not try to jump into more. Let the academic communities band together and work towards a solution to the problem. There are many educated people in colleges and universities that are fully capable of working on the problem without government intervention.

  • No government investigation

    Academic cheating is widespread but a government commission is not necessary to find reasons to stop it. Whenever the government gets involved they usually just propose bad ideas that will not succeed. It is best to let the private institutions find ways to cut down on this widespread illegal activity.

  • No, I do not think so.

    I think academic cheating is the same it has always been. There have just been more students getting caught simply for the fact that there are more students in school and more ways to catch them. Not sure if a government commision should be formed to brainstorm reduction methods. Seems a bit far-fetched.

  • No, an anti-cheating bureacracy would just lead to corruption

    No, the same principles that lead to cheating are also present in government corruption. Academic cheating occurs because having a degree is a useful tool for securing power. These fundamental impulses wouldn't be changed due to a brainstorming commission being formed. If a person is willing to cheat, they are also likely willing to bribe bureaucrats and find loopholes in any government legislation. Academic cheating should be eliminated at the source by diligent teachers, not easily evaded legislation.

  • It hasn't changed.

    No, academic cheating has not become such a widespread issue that a special government commission should be formed to brainstorm methods to reduce it, because cheating is no worse than it ever was. Cheating might be easier to catch today, but there's no reason to believe that more students cheat than used to.
