According to media reports, current levels of academic dishonesty have approached near–epidemic proportions. Given the high level of media attention––with headlines such as "High Stakes Testing Results in Widespread Cheating" and "More Students Cheating with Fewer Regrets"––it should come as no surprise that educators, parents, and students are searching for strategies to deal with this pressing problem.

Cheating in School is the definitive book on addressing and preventing the problem of academic dishonesty. Incorporating over thirty years of research, Stephen F. Davis, Patrick Drinan, and Tricia Bertram Gallant provide educators and laypersons with practical advice and insights for tackling this current epidemic. The facts about cheating, its causes, and its consequences are presented in clear and straightforward language. By presenting real student narratives combined with empirical research, the authors provide a roadmap to combating cheating in schools and creating a climate of academic integrity.
