Entire class caught cheating on test

Entire High School Class Caught Cheating On Test

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.

Why would a teacher leave a classroom of kids alone? And why are these kids allowed to have their cellphones on them during a test?

Phones should not be allowed in class...Period. When I was in school we couldn't even use a calculator of any kind, unless it was a slide rule. Fail them all!!!!

Leaving the answer key on her desk is just another example of what's wrong with America's K-12 system.

You apparently flunked history; the National Socialists were right-wing fascists.

But this is a red state...do you know what 'red state' means?

Incredilble that the teacher left the class during the test AND left the answers on his/her desk ! DAH ! We'll probably find out in a couple weeks that the teacher was having an affair with one ot the students and thus was blackballed into leaving the answers on the desk ! Just watch !!!
