Our teachers taught us sharing is caring, but they probably weren't referring to test answers. CBS reports that, "an entire class at Southgate Thomas J. Anderson High School was caught cheating. The teacher knew something was wrong when everyone got a perfect score on the test."
... Because everyone suddenly getting 100 percent isn't suspicious at all. A major lack of common sense aside, the plan does show how easy it is to cheat with today's technology.
WWJ-TV reports two juniors at Anderson High School in Southgate, Michigan, admitted to taking cell phone photos of the answer key while their teacher was in the hall. They then shared the information through a group text. WXYZ filmed Superintendent Leslie Hainrihar saying, "just because you can take a picture with your cell phone of anything you want, it doesn't mean that it's a good idea."
According WXYZ, "the superintendent would not say which class cheated, but did say approximately 30 students were taking a required exam for 11th graders."
The most immediate punishment: while everyone else is enjoying summer break, the entire class has to come back and retake the test.
The school's superintendent said further consequences will depend on each student's history of misconduct and suspensions in the fall are a possibility.
