As many as 50 students in Hanover, New Hampshire “conspired to break into” their school and “steal final exams.” Instead of keeping this issue within the school’s disciplinary powers, school administrators went straight to the police to have the students arrested for trespassing or related charges. Some parents are fighting back against the charges, saying the issue should be left solely to the schools.
Do you think the school is right to press charges? And what do you think about the case in general—is this a statement of students being so desperate to succeed and get into college that they’ll try anything? Or is it just a group too lazy to do the work themselves?
