There’s high drama in the classroom at the University of Central Florida. Richard Quinn, a longtime business instructor, gives 600 students their mid-term exam. Then comes the anonymous tip that cheating is rampant. Forensic analysis bears that out. Ultimatums are made. Moral lessons drawn. Soon the confessions – all 200 of them – follow. A rough day for all involved.
Postscript: We poked around a bit more and read the student newspaper at UCF. It’s possible that the cheating ring may be less devious than it first appears, but it’s still not entirely clear.
