I hate plagarism with a passion.  Really, I do.  And this time ... it's much worse than usual.

Of course, by federal law, I can't talk about it.

Yeah. Though with this sort of massive mis-behavior, I wish I hadn't.

It blows my mind that nobody thinks they'll get caught.

Honestly ... I wouldn't have caught it if some of those involved hadn't been supremely stupid about how they did it. It is not that difficult to get stuff by well-meaning, trusting instructors.

Which I'd rather be one of, all things considered. This is what makes old fart professors into bitter people (among other things ...)

Sheesh. Plagiarism is an offense that can get you kicked out of school; I don't understand why anyone would do it. I can see considering it, but usually you're better off telling the professor that you're having some difficulty in finishing whatever assignment you're working on, and ask for an extension (usually for some penalty). Having the guts to do that is another matter.

I thought Kettering students were smarter than that.

Anyway, cheating is never cool, and you can tell the people that cheated their way through school when you get into the workforce. Those people are quickly promoted to middle management so they can do the least damage. Granted, that means they make more than the people who do real work... Wait, this was supposed to be about the evils of cheating... It's turning into a reason TO cheat.

But, those middle management jobs can get cut out pretty quickly, and with the new company that's taking over my workplace, they'll root out the bad apples (or anyway, I hope they do).

Students who are smart enough to cheat without getting caught usually don't have to cheat in the first place.

And cheating happens at Kettering, like anywhere else, because sometimes they can get away with it. Some professors are known for their crib-ability.
