Are these parents for real? Cheating in schools is a huge problem in India but the malpractice took a different, sad turn this week in Bihar city when parents of 10th-grade students climbed the wall of a school building and perched from windows of classrooms as they handed cheat sheets to children writing the tests inside.
Photographs and videos showing parents, friends and others scaling the school wall – Spiderman-style – went viral in India today. The video also shows
police officers standing nearby watching helplessly.
Under Bihar’s anti-cheating law, dozens of 12th grade students were expelled and their parents detained last month in cases of cheating in tests. But that hasn’t stopped the parents. Sad!
