Incredibly, some teachers have actually encouraged students to cheat.
The Death of Honesty
For me, this was a disheartening look at how people have merely come to expect our leaders, teachers, power influencers, and all those et cetera to lie, cheat, and manipulate. In fact, I began to see that people who expect that type of honesty from certain people are considered naive or foolish. Yet, honesty is a core element of civilized society and yet it is rarely covered in school. It isn’t necessarily taught, or enforced, or even discussed openly.
Luckily, we’re in a school environment now that supports open dialogue and honesty. However, even here I’ve noticed that there are some things best left unsaid for sake of keeping still waters still.
However, if still waters have ripples that echo far and wide once those unsaid things grow from pebbles to rocks.
What is your perception of the teaching of honesty in our schools?
