Schools Tackle Growing Practice of Cheating

"Cheating in high school is as common an occurrence as adolescent acne - and has proven to be just as difficult to control. Intense competition for slots in highly selective colleges has contributed to the problem, expanding the practice to include high-achieving students when decades ago cheaters were mainly D students trying simply not to fail."

Just in time for the beginning of the new academic year, this article (part I of II) by Marsha Sutton in the La Jolla Light highlights the ever-growing trend of cheating in schools.
It just seems like whatever you try and do, cheating on exams and classwork continues to grow at an alarming rate.
Please take a look at the rest of the article, "Schools Tackle Growing Practice of Cheating" and tell us examples of cheating at your school and/or how you are trying to combat cheating.
