Students have been cheating on tests and term papers for years. But now, they're increasingly doing it in class with cell phones and PDAs, according to the Chron. In fact, more than a third of the nation's teens say they use cell phones to improve their test scores or grades, according to a new poll. In addition, about of a quarter of students polled said that looking at stored notes on a cell phone is not cheating. That not only speaks volumes about teens today, but it says a lot about the corrupting effects of new media. It also makes one wonder why any school still allows students to bring portable electronic devices to class.
