Cheating in School Reviews

"The plan includes infusing academic integrity into the fabric of schools, colleges or universities, developing student character and integrity, responding to cheating, reducing temptations and opportunities for cheating, and acknowledging that cheating happens and it is a problem." (, 23 November 2010) "A comprehensive look at the cheating phenomenon from primary through graduate school." (Faculty Focus, October 2009) "[The authors] combine their years of interest in and experience with issues of academic integrity to provide an overview of the problem of academic dishonesty at all levels of education... This is the first attempt to synthesize all levels and several nations in a concise, readable format accessible to the general reader.The authors cite plenty of real-world examples and suggest usable tactics and strategies ... thus making the book useful for educators as well as lay readers... A great overview of a significant subject, accessibly accomplished." (Library Journal, October 2009) "I found Cheating in School to be a good read... I recommend this book to both faculty and administrators who must deal with this issue in their work." (International Higher Education Consulting Blog, October 2009) "Although much of the specific advice in the book is U.S. focused, the genuine and broad-ranging vision offered by the authors make the lessons applicable internationally."
