Manpreet and Harpreet are explaining that college students can be pressured to cheat by a group of classmates. Because of the intensity in pleasing the wrong crowd despite the severe consequences, students fail in academic honesty in that they are afraid of standing for what is honest; therefore they plagiarize.

Would you be happy if you had received an A in your class? Do you feel that you truly learned enough to deserve that perfect A? Students who are in either high school or college are forgetting the true meaning of having knowledge and being able to learn. People think that how well they perform in the classroom will justify how well the teacher teaches their students but necessary that might not always be that way. In Brent Staples piece, “Why Colleges Shower their Students with A’s”, he argues that there must be an end to the grade Inflation and continues by examining for a possible solution by using language techniques to emphasize the main point.
According to codes 4.01/4.04/4.07 confidentiality, privacy and personal information pertaining to participants should be maintained and used for research purposes (American Psychological Association, 2002). There were incidents which took place contributing to the professor violation of the confidentiality codes. One incident was when the professor belittled Johnny about his grade and performance in the class. Another incident is telling students if he or she does not complete the test they will receive an F in the course. This is a violation of code 8.06 because the nature of the experiment was not clarified beforehand the professor waited until after the students begin rebelling to make a bargain for their grade.

Cell phones were banned in schools because they thought it was related to drugs and gangs. As phones got smaller and easy to text, many more teens got them. Teachers began to worry about cheating and disruptions from phones in class.
Structure like this in classrooms only validates that students are able to argue but, diminishes the opportunities of creating values to the scholarly work and voicing out from the side that share the same opinion as the author. This leads to academic rewards for these arguing students as suggested by Deborah Tannen, leaving the rest to believe that they are not good enough for the academia. Based on personal experience, I would like to add that such agonism demotivates students to explore knowledge outside of their field and creates an impression that they are never meant to explore topics that they are least expert at. This structure has to be reshaped to bring back the original goals of criticizing work so that there is a value for everyone in the
These organizations ought to get the Students to perceive, verbalizes and break down their own issue and distinguish causes and arrangements. Understudies ought to oversee time deliberately as time administration can represent the moment of truth understudies' endeavors to succeed in school courses. Some of the time this is on the grounds that an understudy is deficient with regards to inspiration, is apathetic, ill-equipped, undisciplined, has a poor state of mind, and maybe is not extremely keen. Legit self examination is basic to accomplishment for the savvy, for every one of us commit errors, yet it is the insightful on the off chance that they are fruitful in acclimatize to keep the future disappointment. The individuals who do care look for help and make inquiries when required.
The point of education is for professors to provide students with a variety of views on a controversial subject, not provide them with their own opinions. In fact, when teachers provide students with multiple point of views it not only makes them more successful, but also establishes a more effective curriculum and education to students. However, while Source G argues that the Academic Bill of Rights push for diversity by removing the already present politics in the classroom results in teachers censoring their beliefs for students, even when they are “experts in their subject matter.” It is important to remember that
Students who procrastinate have bad academic performance, low grades, and a “whatever” attitude when it comes to doing their school work. This is a bad habit many students have. Students can break this bad habit by changing their habits, staying more focused and staying organized. There are different types of procrastination. According to Lauren Rosetti (12), author of Procrastination Behaviors in College Students: “Procrastination is defined as the act of postponing an activity or task until another point in time which can result in not having enough time to complete the work.
Gary Gutting and Mark Edmundson the authors of the essays “What is College For?” and “On the Uses of a Liberal Education” respectively expressed their opinions on how college isn’t what it used to be. Gutting said some universities don’t teach what they are supposed to; they make some classes compulsory so students end up taking classes that are unnecessary. In result when students are given these particular courses as they become disinterested and aim for average instead of learning the material. Gutting also points out lack of academic engagement is why people misinterpret the existence of the college.
The student author of the editorial seems to respect the honor code Groveton expects from its students, yet the author assumes the code itself is solely responsible for the alleged reduction in cheating at the school. Citing a survey to further empahsize the aforementioned assumption, the author only invites more speculation on the topic rather than providing further evidence as intended. While cheating is a frowned upon topic in all universities, this editorial is rife with assumptions and fallacious deduction, rendering the argument weak and unconvincing. First, the reporting system for Groveton 's novel honor code and the "old-fashioned" system it replaced both relyed solely on a human witness for reporting. Teachers used to monitor students and the new protocol calls for students to monitor each other and report any instances of cheating.
In the Article “The Year of the Imaginary College Student” Hua Hsu, a teacher at Vassar University does his best to create a case to see if the tension that stems from the fault finding college students say more about those who criticize political correctness more than it does the actual situations revolving around the true state of affairs. He states that the imaginary college student is a character created by critic’s cynicism. An easy target because current students are known as being a selfish, egotistical, and entitled generation also known as the millennial generation. Hsu sites several examples where students were seeking trigger warnings when in reality it is rarely the intention of a student or teacher to say something offensive.

Susan Blum's article, "Academic Integrity and Student Plagiarism: A Question of Education, Not Ethics" focuses on the reasons behind students' lack of academic integrity. First, Blum believes institutions treat plagiarism as a crime or as an immoral act but neither method is effective. The author thinks students place their personal priorities over honor codes and don't take rules concerning plagiarism seriously (Blum). This means students would rather help their friends cheat than do the right thing. Second, Blum thinks teachers struggle to teach the complex skills needed for citation.
