"Faking the Grade: Classroom Cheaters":
As an epidemic of academic dishonesty sweeps schools around the country, Faking the Grade: Classroom Cheaters explores our brutal culture of achievement – and how it pushes students to succeed at all costs. In this new documentary, students, administrators, parents, and teachers share their experiences with what's known as "academic integrity," while experts provide insight into why students cheat. Those experts say it's no surprise: kids see cheating going on everywhere today, from the world of sports and entertainment to Wall Street and beyond. The film also reveals the wide variety of techniques young people are using to cheat, including bribery and even sabotage. It all prompts an important question: what does all this cheating say about how important honesty is to our children… and to all of us?
