‘Faking The Grade’ CBC Doc Zone Trailer
The film reveals what comprises a cheating offence (it’s not a black or white matter) and how the internet and electronic technology are now being used to cheat – and to catch the cheaters. In FAKING THE GRADE, viewers will discover the wide variety of other techniques young people are using to cheat: everything from bribery to sabotage (the latter: where a student makes sure others can’t find the research they need to complete an assignment). All of this is set in the context of some shocking, real-life examples of dishonesty – from students paying others to sit exams for them, to teachers changing the marks on standardized tests to make themselves and their schools look good. 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?
