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.

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.
It has come to my concern that the Oak Hills school is considering lifting the strict no cell phone policy at school. Many people say that cell phones can be used as a teaching tool and that students need to use them correctly. I think cell phones should be banned from school because not all the students have cell phones, they can be used inappropriately, and they are negatively affecting student’s grades.

Raskin carries his claims by emphasizing that the issue will continue to persist, until Educational systems change their overall method of engaging with students. These changes would require the following adjustments: moving away from postmodern educational systems, redesigning an educational system that adheres to modern day societies, learning to put an emphasis on student engagement as opposed to student disciplinary actions, developing a new and pristine way of standardized testing; and finally, creating a society which promotes
Are you an honorable person? would you tell if someone was doing something wrong? these two questions are important and Unwritten rules called honor codes. Honor codes have been in schools and workplaces for many years. The guidelines are simple for most iron codes.
Jiamin Huang With an increasing competition of atmosphere and a culture in this 21 Century, most of the people looking for an accelerated way of doing or achieve something which is called shortcuts.

David Vesler, the author of “The One Minute Case Against Cheating”, presents a logical argument to dissuade students from cheating.
