[QUOTE=copernicus;4500980]Sign of the times. Its what parents allow kids to bring to school everyday. Just another example of how difficult it is in the classroom. Technology used in devious ways that underminds the adults who are trying to educate students. But you see, this stuff is ignored, it will NEVER be a factor when the government evaluates the teacher and system.
Keep allowing Bill Gates and his foundation to be such a HUGE contributer to education with very little research about the products his company is selling. He invented something, he definitly knows what's best in a classroom!!![/QUOTE]
Youre ignoring the fact he didnt just take advantage of a technological crib sheet here - he distributed answers to tests to 50 students. Thats not isolated cheating, thats a ring, and like shakin pointed out, he may very well have been compensated, either financially or through status, "helping" his peers.
