Cheating II Father Edwin Daschbach, SVD When teens are told that there is nothing wrong with cheating, because it is another way of learning class material, we have a problem. If cheat- ing is OK, then lying is OK and steal- ing is OK, because that's what cheat- ing is. An assignment or other work done in a school subject that is handed in with student A's name on it, but contains student B's work, or when other fraudulent means are used to replace '. genuine effort, the student is stealing someone else's work and lying to the teacher. And a lie cheapens the person telling it, whether done verbally or through some action, and can be- smirch a student's reputa- tion. The movie The referred to last week shows that cheating in high school can continue into adult life. And there it can have disastrous ef- fects. When a plane manufacturer cheats on the quality of components in planes he/she builds in order to reap a higher profit; when toxins are dumped illegally in waters offshore; when a transportation company trucks chemi- cals to the West Coast. and returns liquid milk for children in the same truck body; when a chemist in a crime lab falsifies reports resulting in the conviction of innocent people; in such cases we don't see sudden dishonesty. We see the result of dishonesty earlier in life that was never curbed because it was quite possibly never discovered or challenged or punished. What if student B referred to above allows student A to copy her work? Then student B becomes a second cheater, an accomplice, and - to l~e quite honest - a fool. A fool not only because she does someone else's wor~ for him, but also because if she feels her work is really appreciated by the sponger or endears herself to him, she doesn't understand human nature. People who allow themselves to be taken advantage of are never really appreciated. .... ...... Deep down the user val- ues not the other but what he gets from another. You never respect whom you USe. Gilmer County High School, where I teach, has a rock solid policy on cheating, spelled out .... clearly in the handbook .% t~t~,~-',~.: t,;i,i, each student is given at the beginning of the year. Cheating in any form is a Category II offense, resulting in a zero grade for all parties involved, and punishable by five days of detention. If cheating happens a second time, it is now a Category llI offense, resulting in a five to ten day suspension (and of course another zero grade). Add a zero grade to an average and watch how the average nosedives. Baseball star Sammy Sosa stained a star-studded career by illegally us- ing a corked bat. Olympic star Ben Johnson's gold medal was stripped in the 1988 Olympics because he used steroids to gain an unfair advantage overothers. Cheating doesn't just bring shame to a student. It can destroy a .......... reputation, a er, and even a life.
