Education has provided a platform for many people across the world. Just as Nelson Mandela said, Education is th best Equalizer, in that if you are living a Lower standard life, education will enable you improve. Governments across the world have enabled good access to qualified education. Having said that, there are other factors that come in, like cheating.
Cheating in schools have become rampant in the recent past, a negative behavior that is not encouraged. It can also be termed as academic dishonesty, this behavior has negative consequences when repeated over time. It may even become a habit such that it changes one's moral concept.
Constant cheating can make believe that they can get away with it since they are only in school for a short time. Whereas that might be true, this behavior will continue in other aspects of their lives like in a family. This happens because the forming of this bad habit of cheating leads to devaluation of hardwork.
You will find that people involved in it no longer value fairness and integrity. In the long run, it will become harmful both to the individual and people affected by his actions. It can also lead to someone Loosing their self esteem in the long run. The guilt and shame they suffer from the act of cheating haunts them after.
Once a person suffers from low self esteem, it means they no longer have that self respect which in turn interferes with their family life and even their careers. Even though people who take part in academic dishonesty feel that they can get away with it, they should consider the long term ramifications of their indulgence.
The moment a bad habit begins to affect your personal life, that is the point where you have to reconsider. So it's better to avoid cheating in you have never done so or stop it if you have been involved in it lately. As I conclude, this article is meant to enlighten everyone, not just university or colleges students.
