“There’s the question of whether students are working hard as problem solvers, or working hard as robots who just follow orders but produce no original thought,” said Blake Elias, a recent graduate of Stuyvesant.
Interestingly, in progressive schools, where projects and real-world experiences often dominate learning, cheating is far less common. As educator John Dewey has noted, “School must represent present life.” If schools adopt this mantra, they probably will never witness a cheating incident on their grounds ever again.”
