So my kid's school had a situation whereby some exam papers were stolen before the exam. How it happened? And is it fair to make the kids re-sit the exams? Are not important to me. Sadly, this is not an uncommon occurrence globally. What is important to me is that the school deals with it accordingly.
1. Have the kids re-sit the exams. Sounds good to me, it would be unfair if even one of those kids had gotten an A* from cheating.
2. Investigate and discipline those concerned. Firing any staff or expelling any students involved, making an example of them and sending a clear warning to any who may consider such violations in the future.
3. Ensure that strict measures are put in place to avoid this happening again.
Thank you KES.
Life is unfair, and rather than allowing my daughter to whine and feel sorry for herself she is back at school today re-sitting Chemistry with the other kids, and Maths tomorrow.
Yesterday I was talking to a relative who happily told me about a person he used to pay to write his essays, presentations and dissertations to whom he paid KD 20 for his services. Apparently, this is rampant and there are even online websites where you can find someone to hire, just Google 'write my dissertation cheap'.
We do not live in a perfect world. At the end of the day it is core values that are at stake; avoiding corruption, encouraging accountability and most of all your good reputation and integrity. A lazy, dumb ass that cheats is still a lazy, dumb ass. Oops sorry no, they are a cheating, lazy, dumb ass.
