Abstract

Mathieu Bouville's "Why is cheating wrong?" (Studies in Philosophy and Education, 29(1), 67-76, 2010) misses the mark by failing to consider the longer term consequences of cheating on student character development and longer term societal consequences of undermining professional expertise and trust in disciplines where an earned degree is an essential part of professional certification and qualifications. Educators who turn a blind eye to student cheating are cheating the public by failing to deliver on the promise of graduates who genuinely earned their degrees.
