Study Says Most Teens Cheat

A massive study involving nearly 70,000 U.S. college and high school students has found that 70 percent admit to cheating. This distressing statistic highlights a 14 percent increase since 1993, and a 44 percent hike since 1963. The Duke University report also indicated that Internet plagiarism has quadrupled in the past six years.

A separate poll of 25,000 high schoolers found that nearly half agreed with the statement, "A person has to lie or cheat sometimes in order to succeed."
