Cheating in School
http://www.fairmontflyer.com/features/2010/09/29/what-exactly-is-cheating-and-why-do-students-do-it/ My thoughts on why students cheat is that they do it because they might be getting behind and not have time to study. With a few different classes and homework and projects to do and essays to write for each class, there is no time to study for tests. I think that kids just have too much work and get stressed out because of everything they neeed to do. There is more pressure on them to do well in High School because students are starting to think about college and want to get in to the best school possible. In order to get good grades, some students could cheat by looking at others papers, texting answers or asking students who already took the test. Cheating needs to stop because it isn't fair ffor anyone to get grades they don't deserve. Teachers could trake away phones and seperate students to cut down on cheating.
