Opinions: Harvard Cheating Scandal


Earlier, I watched a video on the Harvard Cheating Scandal. I have to say that I was a little confused. I was confused because if your teacher or professor gives you a take home "test," you should know not to plagiarize. You should use your own knowledge and not someone else's. Also, I think the professors were very naive to give the students a take home test because if I were to be on of the students, I would probably collaborate with my classmates, too. I think if had ever cheated on a test, my parents would not be too happy about that. I think you should never cheat on a test because I think you're taking away from your own knowledge, and even if you don't know something, don't cheat, take an educated guess. Thats mostly what I do, I think that even if you don't know that you have a test coming up, you should study anyway. I think the students should know that you should not collaborate on a test. But, I think they should just get suspended, not expelled.

  1. I agree with your opinion on cheating, but not on the punishment you think the students deserve. Can you explain why they should suspended and not expelled?
