According to research conducted by the Center for Academic Integrity, cheating is big in high schools, and I has been happening for years.
The report taken 2005 proves that more than 70% of students surveyed admitted to taking part in some type of serious cheating, and nearly 60% said they had plagiarized from Internet sources.
That was the popular rationalization, it seems. But are you really okay with that? Are you sure? Many of those cheaters from past surveys have graduated now.
