Synopsis

Cheating in School What We Know and What We Can Do by Stephen F. Davis, Patrick F. Drinan, Tricia Bertram Gallant

Cheating in School is the first book to present the research on cheating in a clear and accessible way and provide practical advice and insights for educators, school administrators, and the average lay person.* Defines the problems surrounding cheating in schools and proposes solutions that can be applied in all educational settings, from elementary schools to post-secondary institutions* Addresses pressing questions such as Why shouldn't students cheat if it gets them good grades? and What are parents, teachers, businesses, and the government doing to unintentionally persuade today's student to cheat their way through school? * Describes short and long term deterrents that educators can use to foster academic integrity and make honesty more profitable than cheating* Outlines tactics and strategies for educators, administrators, school boards, and parents to advance a new movement of academic integrity instead of dishonesty

Reviews

The plan includes infusing academic integrity into the fabric of schools, colleges or universities, developing student character and integrity, responding to cheating, reducing temptations and opportunities for cheating, and acknowledging that cheating happens and it is a problem. (Suite101.com, 23 November 2010)

A comprehensive look at the cheating phenomenon from primary through graduate school. (Faculty Focus, October 2009)

[The authors] combine their years of interest in and experience with issues of academic integrity to provide an overview of the problem of academic dishonesty at all levels of education... This is the first attempt to synthesize all levels and several nations in a concise, readable format accessible to the general reader.The authors cite plenty of real-world examples and suggest usable tactics and strategies ... thus making the book useful for educators as well as lay readers... A great overview of a significant subject, accessibly accomplished. (Library Journal, October 2009)

I found Cheating in School to be a good read... I recommend this book to both faculty and administrators who must deal with this issue in their work. (International Higher Education Consulting Blog, October 2009)

Although much of the specific advice in the book is U.S. focused, the genuine and broad-ranging vision offered by the authors make the lessons applicable internationally. (International Journal for Educational Integrity, June 2009)
