It's not because the school values grades over education. It's because society teaches the students themselves to value the status and superficial value of grades over the enlightenment and fulfillment of knowledge.

I look down on such arrogance,Matoi.
Cheating should be allowed.
IN the real world, only cheaters succeed;

Small companies cannot flourish because they play fair,
the large companies can have tax deductions, and even exemptions from
their property taxes. Everyone has the power to cheat, but
I've learned from trial, error, and watching my boss's company fall apart
from the inside and out that playing fair is not the way to survive.

You HAVE to play dirty. Survival and success are all about cheating!People say you need a highschool education and a college degree to get anywhere,meanwhile the diplomaless and degreeless Bill Gates laughs from his Microsoft Throwne, and Steve Jobs rolls around laughing in his grave at how people work so hard towards a vain goal.

It's about knowing the people to talk to, and evaluating wise decision making.

People with art degrees either make it big by earning millions, or end up broke for the rest of their lives for not having the social skills necessary to make business possible.
The media entertainment field is also the same thing(I am in it), and there are actors that sometimes fall due to this risk.Rather than spending their fortunes, they should be counting their pennies; High-pay-rolls like that only exist because such jobs are hit and miss; you can either find someone willing to hire an actor, or you end up payless for several years. You'd better make those millions of dollars count if that's the case....

You see companies like Walmart succeeding because they chose to play dirty and cheat their employees of their deserved pay.You see our government surviving because they cheat the constitution all the time. You want to know why we're alive?

We have no horns, no tusks, no shells, and no super running abilities.
All we needed was a good brain, and we became the dominant species.

Than again, look at it this way. Why do we value grades over knowledge? It's because we need a system to tell apart true knowledge from false knowledge. Imagine going to the doctor who didn't take any tests through his schooling. He could be a really good doctor who paid attention in every class through med school, but he could also be a fraud who had someone else sing him in every class. The question is, would you trust your doctor if he didn't pass a test? And it's not just doctors, you have pharmacists, chemists, lawyers, economists, politicians and so on.

The problem is in the human nature, not in the school system.

I had a math teacher that was the nicest dude i ever met, loved to teach his students, stayed after class all the time to help, ran the movie nights, gave free cram lessons. He made loukoums and shared them. Loved math like the skinny dork he was, always encouraged the bad grade kids.

People still cheated on math tests.

Shut up neil, some kids like to cheat. It's not always the fault of the Man. Kids take shortcuts, they love it, it's their first logical instinct. You're like the asshole parent that blames the teacher or the 'system' for any kid's wrongdoing. That's as bad as those teenagers that say that they're "another kind of smart that the school system won't recognize" and yet are too lazy to study anything and blame the Man when art schools reject them.

It says "Schools value grades more than STUDENTS VALUE LEARNING". You missed the other half. The students you're talking about just value learning much less than schools value grades. I myself have cheated and I'm one of the smartest guys in my town. If asked why I would say because the grade was more important than learning the material.

It's true, many people have been cheating to get that required GPA to go to their favorite college. Some may not see it wrong at the time and act like it's no big deal or a one time thing, but it becomes a habit on some and when cheating, almost no one learns a lot, so that makes one not prepared and not full of knowledge, but because us Americans prefer those GPAs and Top college GPAs rather than scientific achievements themselves or achievements in general, students are made into a cheating machine that only cares about grades.

I only cheat when I couldn't give less of a **** about said subject.
I think that's only fair, I don't see why I should be forced to learn something I have no interest in past 7th grade. It just gets into too much detail beyond that.
