Market for Grades

The Shadow Scholar - The Chronicle Review - The Chronicle of Higher Education:
I do a lot of work for seminary students. I like seminary students. They seem so blissfully unaware of the inherent contradiction in paying somebody to help them cheat in courses that are largely about walking in the light of God and providing an ethical model for others to follow. I have been commissioned to write many a passionate condemnation of America's moral decay as exemplified by abortion, gay marriage, or the teaching of evolution. All in all, we may presume that clerical authorities see these as a greater threat than the plagiarism committed by the future frocked.

As a lifelong educator, I have shared with you my experience with cheating students, but I must admit, I was shocked and awed by this article! I have quoted the particular extract above, because it is pertinent to the main subject of this blog, and because there is so much discussion these days on the alleged inseparability between religion and morality. Read it all.
