Have you used, or would you use, the Internet to cheat in school?

One in every five American teenagers admits using the Internet to plagiarize material for school assignments. A survey found that 24% of the boys and 14% of the girls said they had done so at least once. The actual number of teens who behave in this fashion could well be higher. checkout... http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2006/06/12/gentech/main1701357.shtml

I think the percentage would be just as high in Australia. It really annoys me that students cheat in this way. I heard that my brothers step son was doing it all the time. Obviously his school didn't check assignments thoroughly enough. My daughters school would never allow cheating from the internet. All her work is checked, & they would know if there is cheating. There must be a lot of teachers here who don't check much work. The whole situation is not fair, as students are competing for places in University. There need to be penalties for cheating from the internet.

No I wouldn't. Cheating is cheating no matter what the source. Eventually it will catch up with the cheaters. They will only be cheating themselves in the long run.
