The real damage from the Poshard case at SIU

From TMCNews:

In the [Josephson Institute] survey, 36 percent of students said they used the Internet to plagiarize an assignment.
Goodwill High School Principal John Beyer said he wasn't surprised by the results.

"I think students see CEOs, they see politicians, they see celebrities commit crimes and perjury and really there's not a lot of consequences, so they figure why not," Beyer said. "The dream is to get ahead and do whatever works. We want an honest society, and unfortunately that's not what we read about."
