Success the Easy Way: A Culture of Cheating

Success the Easy Way: A Culture of Cheating

According to social experts, Americans rank high among the most competitive, stressed-out people in the world. We live in a culture that demands the best in all aspects of our lives. Many of us, regardless of occupation or income, claim there’s just not enough time or resources to get everything done without risking failure and rejection if we don’t.

If you’re preparing to take your college entrance exams, this pressure has probably already begun to build. It may even have started before high school when you began to get the message that you needed to buckle down, earn high grades, and ensure your success and acceptance into the college world beyond high school. The message is clear: “You must be the best to get ahead.”

Just how far are we willing to go to be successful? In the past decade, numerous research projects (including studies by The Rutgers University Management Education Center and the University of Santa Clara Center for Academic Integrity) concluded that cheating among students is rampant — 70 to 90 percent of students admitted to cheating! Some cheating can be attributed to plain old laziness, but many students cited reasons such as not having enough time to get everything done, let alone studying. Most disturbing of all, many of the students polled believe that cheating is an acceptable practice because “everybody does it.”

Students apparently aren’t the only ones cheating, either.
