With cheating and grading being up for discussion now in Wake County, let's look to the situation at Panther Creek High School.
As noted in today's article, Wake County school officials said that five Panther Creek juniors were implicated in up to three incidents of cheating, including distributing copies of an exam. Students and parents say some of the students cited for cheating had been among the top 10 percent in academic rank in the junior class.
In terms of consequences, at least one student was removed from the National Honor Society. A student who distributed a test to several classmates received a short-term suspension and several students received detention as an in-school suspension.
Students also faced academic consequences such as having to take an alternative exam or do an alternative assignment.
