Bad news West Point. USMA. Military Academy cheating scandal. Thanks to the Internet web site Legal Insurrection.
"Over 70 West Point Cadets Accused of Cheating on Calculus Exam"
"A West Point law professor called it a national security issue."
"The U.S. Military Academy [USMA] at West Point accused over 70 cadets of cheating on a math exam, making it the school’s worst academic scandal in 45 years."
Colonel Jack Jacobs awarded the Medal of Honor [MoH] decoration for heroics during the Vietnam War. So high was his esteem as a reserve officer that in case of a general mobilization the Colonel would have been activated with the rank of general officer.
A major academic cheating scandal with many participants. Only one such scandal in forty-five years? I guess that is not so bad.
It is suggested [?] remote learning is to blame. Culprits unmasked by everyone making the same mistake on the same question? Guilty as charged.
NORMALLY CHEATING OF SUCH A NATURE THE PENALTY AT A SERVICE ACADEMY IS INSTANT DISMISSAL. NO MORE?
