They aren't red herrings, though I'm not sure people realize what the implications of some of what I posted yet.

Well first two people I looked up have gotten into serious trouble concerning academic dishonesty.

That is in the second source I presented concerning Academic dishonesty.

The fact one of the researchers you mentioned was suspended from his job for academic dishonesty in his research isn't relevent? I wasn't born yesterday, that is at least one source that just lost credibility, and that was just the first one I investigated.

In reference to that particular source though, I'm showing there is a systematic problem, and showing incidents in multiple states and even countries outlines that there is a problem.

But students weren't the only ones surprised that she wore a shirt supporting McCain.

"In one class, I had one teacher say she will not judge me for my choice, but that she was surprised that I supported McCain," Catherine said.

If Catherine was shocked by such passive-aggressive threats from instructors, just wait until she goes to college.

"Later, that teacher found out about the experiment and said she was embarrassed because she knew I was writing down what she said," Catherine said.

Considering the shear number of people, it is safe to say that teachers permitted it in the classroom, or in the halls.
