Cause and Effect Essay - Cheating

School systems today are so lenient in their rules, guidelines and consequences; thus causing cheating, copying or forgeries to be frequently used.

Many students take advantage of copying someone else's work whenever they are given the chance. Other times, students will simply have someone

else do their work and turn it in as their own, not realizing the effects this behavior can create. This creates a lack of creativity, no sense of

responsibility and the students will never acquire new knowledge. These practices of cheating, copying and forgery by students are unethical and

should be brought to the surface whenever possible.

Students that copy other student's work are hurting themselves in the long run. Their creativity level drops every time they copy or have someone

else do their work. After a while of copying and forging, the student's ability to think creatively and successfully becomes next to nothing.

"Educators must continue to socialize students of all ages about the importance of maintaining high ethical standards," (Glazer 222).

Students also begin to lose the sense of responsibility when they have other people do their work. They don't feel that they have to do anything to pass

a class, only that as long as they turn in a paper, their thoughts or not, they will receive credit for the assignment along with a passing grade. This

creates the feeling that life will always be a handed to them on a silver platter. This type of thinking is what is going into the work environment when

these people leave the education system. Employers don't want workers that can't pull their own weight, and that is all they are going to get from these

people that think cutting corners is all right. Even worse is when these people that "cut the corners" hold management positions. These "crooked managers"

infringe on the ethical workers by asking them to do unethical practices on the job, such as asking their factory workers to pretend they didn't see the

failing scores from the health and safety inspections.

These people that cheat will go through life expecting someone else to always be there to do their work. When the time comes that they will actually have

to do the work themselves, they aren't going to have a clue on where to start. They won't know to take responsibility for the things they do and they will

never be able to think something up on their own. They will be so used to simply grabbing someone else's work that they will fail at anything they try to

accomplish themselves. These people need to be stopped not only for their sake but because it is not fair to the people whose work they are always stealing.

People work hard and should receive credit for the things the do, the people that don't work hard, should not receive credit. We must reward the

"ethical resisters" that are brave enough to speak up when they notice these unethical practices taking place. "For ethical resisters are, indeed, the heart

of a national resolve for individual responsibility on behalf of the common good" (Glazer 225).

    If I was to use random sampling straight away, without taking a stratified sample, I may not obtain very fair results; for instance, I could end up with 50 girls from a key stage but only 20 boys.

  2. Investigation into the shapes of limpets on sheltered and exposed rocky shores.

    As can be seen from the pictures above, limpets have a hydrodynamic shape so that resistance to water flow is reduced. This ensures that it doesn't overturn as it is less of an 'obstacle'. Limpets feed mainly on microalgae, using a shovel-shaped radula.
