Your Chinese "edeucation" shows through your splendid ignorance. You don't know how many cheater ...



I know that was too heavy a dose of truth for you. Let me administer a pain-killer to you. It is useless to blame the cheaters; you need to deal with the SYSTEM. Cheating is systemic.

It works like this: FIrst all the pupils memorise things they hardly understand just so they can take the month-end test and the half-term exam. The teachers are worn out by mindless and endless repetitive readings of the same textbooks but they must plod on and do the same mindless task again.

They lose their own competency in the subject because it gets underutilised. The tests and exams don't challenge skills but a learner's recall.

Worse: In a class of 55 pupils, 55 identical test papers get distributed. The pupils sit so close to each other that each of them can copy the answers his or her neighbour enters. No one asks pupils different questions of different pupils to prevent mass copying. In a class of 55, you can be sure that 45 spied in the papers of their neighbour to make sure they entered the same, supposedly "correct" answer.

No school ever does anything against this trend. Teachers temselves don't want the extra work of having to check papers that differ from pupil to pupil.

How do you "stem out" cheating?

Through a heavy dose of moral education.  
Unfortunately, China's 'education' is all about passing exams with flying colors but nothing about morals and social responsibility.  That is not education, it is merely acquiring knowledge, and the result is generation upon generation of economic animals motivated by self interest, to become rich by all means, fair and foul, at the expense of others in society!

Why do you say "cheating is PREVALENT in many countries..." as if it was the most normal, most reg ...

'It is deeply ingrained in the national psyche'

Yes, as alluded to in my thread, the cheating culture has migrated from schools to businesses;  to get rich quick through any means has become the national pursuit!

talking about intellectual property, I can only say don't believe their words, watch their actions ...

'then they wouldn't use cliche like " the priority now..." they shall annouce solemnly to the world " we will initiate a massive nationwide campaign to combat .....".  

Those who have been in China long enough would understand that when the govt says 'the priority now..', it means they will give it a try, but no guarantee that will work to fix the problem, and after a lot of fanfare, it's business as usual.  For instance, they gave priority to getting rid of plastic waste, especially plastic bags, a lot of fanfare when the move was announced, then it all fizzled out and we are back to square one!  Same goes for ban on smoking;  today, years after the ban was imposed, irresponsible smokers are puffing everywhere, with impunity, especially in public toilets!  So, take whatever the govt says with a pinch of salt!

Yes, cheating can only be successful when officials close one eye, or are part of the cheating.

'And that is why China is faced with a trade war.'

Trump is trying to fix that problem!  He may well succeed.

Are you sure there are many innocent and "honest" students? That's far from certain. Most probably ...

Cheating requires money as electronic devices are not cheap, and in some cases, money to grease the palms of officials, so it is fair to say there are many who can't afford to do it!
