A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Transcript (may appear different than audio recording):

The rise of technology has created an increase in cheating on college campuses according to Bloomberg.com. Stanford University has seen an increase in cheating that could include as many as 20% of students in one intro class cheating. Other universities are having problems as well including North Carolina, and Harvard. You can blame technology, that’s true, but our culture has shown students that you can get by with breaking rules. Look how many celebrities and athletes are caught disobeying rules and get by. Maybe students assume if they can get by, when can’t they cheat on a test? I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.
