Columbia Kids Use Facebook To Fight For Their Right To Cheat

Written by Kari Milchman on . Posted in Education, Posts.

Apparently it’s not enough that Columbia University freshman allegedly caught cheating get off scot-free, they want the school to accept their morally questionable grades, too! After the incident, in which students were told what passages they’d be questioned on during the exam, the school decided that their only punishment would be that they must retake the test or accept a final grade based on their other coursework. But it seems the students want their bolstered scores to factor into their GPA, and have started a petition on asking the administration to reconsider. We’re sure if they ask really, really nicely, they’ll get their way.
