How many high school students would you guess cheat regularly on their classwork? Twenty percent? Forty percent? Eeek ... Fifty percent?
Would you imagine in your wildest dreams that it could be as high as 90%?
This weekend, the Beaumont (TX) Enterprise launched a special report on school cheating ... and the myriad other forms of cheating it spawns ... in Southeast Texas. And our survey of more than 350 local juniors and seniors found more than 90% admit cheating at least monthly. But before you breathe a sigh of relief that you don't live in Southeast Texas (or considering moving away from here) you should know: That's about the national average, too.
