Don't tell Jaden Smith though, he may start tweeting about schools again.

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.

Or it's because you are too lazy to study but still want a decent grade. Like right now I should be studying for my mid-terms but I am just browsing funnyjunk like usual

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?

BECAUSE EVOLUTION HELPED US CHEAT:
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.

SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST IS DETERMINED BY WHO HAS THE ADVANTAGE,
NOT THE ONE WHO PLAYS "FAIR".

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 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.

While some of the arguments of "You have to make them want to learn" are semi-valid, it's not all the teachers responsibility. The students themselves have to have the motivation, and theres really no way to tell if a student has the motivation and is learning something. Testing isn't the greatest, but until a better way is found it's the best we have.

I'm not cheating I'm simply... double checking.

There are students who are going to cheat or at least try to, regardless of what kind of educational system there is. It doesn't matter what kind of system there is so long as someone doesn't want to learn it, and opting for "non-compulsory primary school" for children who don't want to learn just sounds like a horrible idea.
