I want to say kudos II Alberta Education officials for their diligence in nailing down this cheating scandal. I also applaud Sarah O'Donnell & Keith Gerein of The Edmonton Journal in their investigative ability. As someone who wrote (by exam challenge) VI exams fairly & honestly at Jasper Place High School in January MMX myself, I am horrified by the actions of these students.
It seems II me that since I earned all 200 of my credits in High School honestly, and a University Degree (to boot), these kids should be forced to as well. There should be no more online access of old or new High School exams. And there should be no more proctoring by non teachers or home residence tests. If a student is sick, then let him/her write in a hospital or say a hospice.
Bravo IV getting these kids caught. Their delay in moving onto post-secondary institutions will teach them a lesson & make them stronger & more forthright in life. They'll know the path to virtue is by being totally transparent and hard working in both mental & physical function.
Have A Great Policy Convention David,
