The mass cheating came to light after the class’ professor noticed similarities in several of the exams. He took them to Harvard’s administrative board last May. That board found about half were suspicious. The university’s dean of undergraduate education, Jay M. Harris, called the level of cheating “unprecedented in anyone’s living memory.” Harris and other school administrators emailed all faculty and students at the school notifying them of the investigation. He told the Crimson that the school had already been planning to re-raise the issue of academic integrity and so this incident is a “teaching opportunity.”
How about a “kicking the cheaters out of school opportunity”? Probably not as that might negatively impact the donations from these kids parents.
Future leaders of our country, my ass.
