I can appreciate these real incidents that happen in your own backyard take concepts that might seem to be black and white in an abstract and distant way right into your discomfort zone. Rest assured there have been many long conversations in senior leadership offices as they wrestle with the right path through the maze, seeking to be consistent, looking at past precedents and ones that might be set, what’s right for the institution, the individual mid, to what extent COVID and its many layers of impact was or was not a mitigating factor…and on and on. Leadership and decision-making in these instances are hard going and the path forward is not always beautifully and clearly lit. No matter the decisions made, I am sure the pressure was immense, and in this case, as in most things these days, the emails, letters and social media “helpful advice” from bystanders has been plentiful.Honor should be an open discussion. My class now has a stain that will follow us forever (probably). Ask away. I'm sure the other mids as well as myself will be open to share what we know.
There is no stain on 2023. The stain is on the cheaters.
Nah, not the first and won't be the last "scandal."Honor should be an open discussion. My class now has a stain that will follow us forever (probably). Ask away. I'm sure the other mids as well as myself will be open to share what we know.
It’s been a long and painful slog from when the percentages were so low.Paywall on that one, Doc. Here's a similar article:
Absolutely awful. It would have been different were I in charge back then.
True. I was responding to Skipper's post about the stain on his class from cheating on tests. Nobody remembers Urinalgate so another cheating scandal will surely not be remembered. Plus, there's the higher standards, America's finest, and the cost per student compared to the State U. graduates that intensifies the scrutiny.I don’t want to get off the thread topic, though there are any number of honor and conduct scandals to dish the scuttlebutt on, going back years, aided and abetted by the fact a SA scandal will almost always be more enduringly in the spotlight than State U. This despite years and years of routinely not having scandals and producing fine grads.
