Cheating Scandal in a Harvard Government Class

A
cheating scandal has rocked the venerated Harvard University:

Harvard University is investigating allegations that almost half the
students in an undergraduate class last spring may have plagiarized
or "inappropriately collaborated" on their final exams, the
school announced Thursday.

Following an initial investigation, Harvard’s administrative board,
which enforces academic regulations, undertook "a comprehensive
review of the more than 250 take-home final exams" submitted at
the end of a course, the school said in a statement.

The Harvard Crimson, the school’s flagship student-run newspaper, identified
the class in which the cheating allegedly occurred as Government 1310:
Introduction to Congress.

Cheating in a Government class about Congress? Sounds like proper job
training to me!
