Address cheating in exams

Letters, Normal

The National, Friday November 1st, 2013

 I WRITE to express my gross disappointment about the cheating culture that is prevalent in a number of school in the Highlands region. Regardless of how hard we try to eradicate cheating, it has become a norm for students to seek avenues elsewhere to smuggle in answers. Exams are proving to be a worthless yardstick because of this. Provincial authorities are alarmed at how easy the answers find their way into provinces. A thorough investigation must be done to identify and implicate those who are responsible for circulating the answers. If nothing is done, then our entire education system is resting on a time bomb  and lead to the production of an incompetent human resource.
