At Columbia Journalism School, their $60,000 degrees are being devalued because of a cheating scandle. One students says, " The more you guys write about it, the more the value of our $60,000 degree goes down the drain." One would think the ethics instructor that put the online, open-book, take-home final would know better. Others argue it's a non-story - how does one cheat on a take-home test? According to Test-takers finding new ways to cheat 70% of all students admit to some level of cheating. Perhaps the guy that completed the test in 32 minutes had some help.
