Yahoo: PATNA, India (AP) — About 600 high school students in eastern India have been expelled for cheating on pressure-packed 10th grade examinations. More than 1.4 million 10th graders are taking the tests at more than 1,200 high schools across the state. They face tremendous pressure because they must pass the exams to continue their education.

Get a load of this. The kids we’ve copied homework off of and stolen exam answers from for our entire lives are at the center of one of the world’s biggest cheating scandals. Glass house, India. Glass house. I will say that students needing to pass an exam to move to the next grade is straight up RUTHLESS. I can imagine the pressure on the students and their families. There’s a long line of family doctors at stake. If that was the case in America, people would be murdering people to get the right answers. Having to take those standardized tests was annoying enough, but they pretty much hold your hand to make sure you get the scores you need. It’s every man for himself out in India. It’s a dog eat dog world out there.
Total anarchy by the way. I have a feeling every year, the people who get picked to administer the tests get together for a big shindig the night before to discuss what kind of antics they’re in store for the ensuing day. It’s obvious they get no respect from anyone. You got parents scaling walls, passing notes through the windows, students literally conversing and yelling answers across the room, just total chaos in the streets. It’s gotta be one of the biggest “Welp! Parents are climbing the walls, these kids are out of control, fuck it” situations in the entire world. I guess children all across the world have gotten lazy. Indian parents have just decided to take their kids’ futures into their own hands. If that requires them climbing 5 stories to pass notes through a window, so be it. They’re on a completely different level of parental supervision in India.
Imagine if they don’t pass the exams. If my dad was hopping fences and climbing the side of buildings to feed me answers and I still failed he would kick my ass. I don’t event want to think about how Indian parents punish their kids. Russell Peters has made it sound horrifying enough.
