It sort of scares me that people like this are teaching kids

I found the following quote in a story about how 64% of high school students have cheated on a test:

Riddle, cialis canada find who for four decades was a high school teacher and principal in northern Virginia, sildenafil agreed that more pressure could lead to more cheating, cialis yet spoke in defense of today’s students.

“I would take these students over other generations,” he said. “I found them to be more responsive, more rewarding to work with, more appreciative of support that adults give them.

“We have to create situations where it’s easy for kids to do the right things,” he added. “We need to create classrooms where learning takes on more importance than having the right answer.”

  1. Shouldn’t we be teaching kids that it’s important to do the right things whether it’s “easy” or not? Usually, the most important time to do the right thing, is when it’s hard.
  2. I thought the whole point of learning was to have the right answer? At least, I hope that’s what my doctor, lawyer, mechanic, and accountant learned.
