A recent study released by the University of Guelph and Rutgers University found that 53% of undergraduate students admit cheating at university. 15000 students were polled.

Like I've been saying for some time, mass higher education is a bad idea. Its not necessary, not effective, and is a waste of precious public resources and student's lives. The goals of higher education are not the problem, simple solutions, simple minded thinking and the avoidance of complexity is to blame. The world has changed since the 1960's, 70's and 80's, yet, higher education has not adapted. Policy has not adapted.

Should we be surprised by the results?
