Kyle McCuen Greg Nicolai English 1210 10/2/10 Cheaters Never Win School systems are so laid back on their rules, guidelines, and consequences. Therefore students cheat. Many students if given the chance copy someone else's work. Sometimes they don't just copy; they will just have someone else do their work and turn it in as if they wrote it themselves. Most don't even realize what kind of effects this will have on there future behavior. This makes them lazy and they start to have no sense of imagination. Their responsibility and ability to acquire more knowledge goes down every time they cheat. These practices of cheating, copying, and forgery by students are wrong and should be made known to the teachers, supervisors, professors, or someone of a higher power. I don't think it is fair to all of us that work hard, and put our time and effort into working hard to get a good grade. Students that copy are just hurting themselves in the long run. Their overall education falls every time they copy or have someone else do their work. ...read more.


Students can't write a story by themselves, because the computer or someone else can do it for them for cheaper and less effort. Students lose the sense of responsibility when they have other people do their work. They feel that they don't have to do anything to pass a class. As long as they turn in a paper with their name on it, their thoughts or not, they will pass that paper and end up passing the class. This is all that matters to them. This makes them think that life will always be given to them with a silver spoon. This idea is what gets them in to deep trouble in the real world, and at jobs. Employers don't want lazy, cheating workers that can't pull their own weight and that is where students that cheat will be left behind. Along with losing their creativity, the students that copy will never get to feel that sense of accomplishment. It comes when the paper, hard job, or event that took you from having fun to working is finally complete. ...read more.


The people that cheat will go through life expecting someone 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 and then someone with less time on will do it and will show that person up, which could lead to the lazy person getting fired. They won't know to take responsibility for the things they do and they will never be able to be creative and think out-side of the box. They will be so used to having someone else do their work that they will fail at anything they try to accomplish alone. These people need to be stopped early and not only for their sake, but because it is not fair to the people whose work that they are always stealing. People who work hard should receive credit for the things they do. The people that don't work hard and are lazy should not receive credit and should be punished for trying to steal. We must reward the hard workers and that are brave enough to speak up when they notice these wrong decisions. McCuen 1 ...read more.
