This is how it works. There are all sorts of policies regarding cheating, including plagiarism. The administration will tell anyone that there are high standards. But when an event of cheating occurs, there is a wink and a nod, and a soft hand must be applied. If the rules laid out in the student handbook are invoked, it is likely that the heavy hand will fall on the teacher, not the student. If one is a part time teacher, they probably will not be invited back. If one is a full time teacher, they've already learned the unspoken rules.
The best argument against liberalism is that it doesn’t work. That should be obvious to any teacher who has to deal with student cheating. Even some sociology teachers are beginning to learn this although they are not aware that they are learning it. Like rats in a Skinner box, their behavior is being modified by reality even when they lack the intellectual capacity to recognize it. It warms my heart to see old liberals changing their ways, even if mindlessly. So I have written a column about it, which I am hoping will someday be reprinted by the New York Times....
