Plagiarism and cheating are never, under any circumstances acceptable; nevertheless, students who cheat are not criminals. Those students should not be judged as criminals. But they must have consequences. Students who cheat don't even understand what they are doing. For most students, cheating is something natural. When someone cheats for the first time, it then becomes a habit.
Students who cheat are wrong. Students should not cheat; there are laws that we must obey.
There are students who are ignorant of the consequences that involve plagiarizing a work and that when they are doing a research paper, and are taking information, they must cite the source or at least put quotes. Is not about playing; moral, ethics, and even students' necessities are involved. When a student decides to cheat is not always about being lazy, there are sometimes other factors that involves their necessity to cheat, such as the pressures of school the pressures at home, at job. A main cause of this problem is the pressure that parents and schools put on students to do well. Education at home is very important. It influences student's decisions and actions.
Everywhere we go we heard of "do your best in school, get the best grades (college admission), and you will succeed". Today, the world outside of class is getting more competitive, and people base our capacity in how well we did in school, how great are our grades.
When grades are the principal tool to measure academic success, it also creates for students the most important thing to worry about, instead of learning something. Students feel pressure to get good grades. Some students feel the ultimate necessity to cheat to get good grades. "People don't go to school to learn. They go to get good grades, which bring them to college, which brings them the high paying job, which brings them to happiness, so they think." (Pope)
Also, there are lazy students who don't care about their necessities and just like to cheat.
Cheating is the easiest way to get good grades, but, does it really works? It might works. It works like a shadow, you get your A but you get nothing in your brain.
