Cheating on tests has always been an issue in education. It is not something that is so severe that a teacher couldnt simply fail a student or have them removed from the class for the duration of an exam. Simply put, if a student's education is lacking. Its the responsibility of the teachers to improve their teaching methods so a student can further understand his topic.
Tests, teachers, this regulation, clothes, video games, all these things are non-issue distractions that are confusing Americans, and for one purpose, to get them not to realize the real reason education is going under: inequality and poverty. In reality, public schools in well-to-do and wealthy areas rank among the highest in the world.
