Our Goal It is the work of true education to develop this power, to train the youth to be thinkers, and not mere reflectors (copy & pasters) of other men's thoughts. White, Education 17 Photo By Tela Chhe
“True education means more than the pursual of a certain course of study. It means more than a preparation for the life that now is. It has to do with the whole being, and the whole period of existence possible to man. It is the harmonious development of the physical, mental, and spiritual powers. It prepares the student for the joy of service in this world and the higher joy of wider service in the world to come. In the highest sense the work of education and the work of redemption are one.” Ellen G. White, Education, p. 31
Cheating no longer carries the stigma that it used to. Less social disapproval coupled with increased competition for admission into universities and graduate schools has made students more willing to do whatever it takes to get the A. Grades (or a diploma), rather than education, have become the major focus of many students. The Challenge http://www.academicintegrity.org/icai/integrity-3.php
