How to Avoid Cheating in College

According to ABC News, the University of Central Florida has a huge problem.  Recently 200 seniors cheated on a Business course midterm.  One third of the class cheated, and now they may not be allowed to graduate. One student called it a witch hunt and said, "This is college.  Everyone cheats, everyone cheats in life in general."


Students may be tempted to cheat in college.  While they are at home, tell them you are aware of the problem, and talk to them about the consequences. Conversations you have now can prevent problems in college and on the job. It might be a good idea to compare these news reports on cheating, and compare them to current events news stories on cheating.   I'm so thankful this college is taking a firm stand on the issue of cheating in business. Stories about AIG, BP, and Bernie Madoff underscore the value of honest business practices.

Parents can make all the difference.  Homeschool parents have the advantage, because they can make sure honesty is promoted, and that conversations about honesty reflect their values.

  • Making School Fun

    I tried to incorporate games into our homeschool whenever possible, in order to make school fun. We played math games, art games, and economics games. They would giggle when I wrote on the assignment sheet "Play 30 minutes of Masterpiece" or "Play SAT Game." Making homeschooling fun is a great way to instill the love of learning.
