I saw this happen with other professors as well. The excuse the professors gave was "They'll learn later on in life that cheating is not the way to succeed." Really? Exactly when was the revelation supposed to happen? In the meantime, the other students were harmed because the profs were grading on a curve. If cheaters got high scores, it gave non-cheaters with lower scores lower grades. I decided not to proctor for those professors any more, since the department head didn't care either.
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....
