    The cheating problem is not specific to Harvard or to any other elite American universities. It's a part of a bigger problem called "Grade Inflation".

    Harvard professor Harvey Mansfield on "Grade Inflation":

    There is something sick in the spectacle of mature adults showering young people with unbelievable praise, that professors who have devoted their lives to their field should be so quick to find excellence in so many students. It just doesn't make sense that 50% of a Harvard class can receive an A or A-. And yet that's what our average is. To show my contempt for the grade inflation that we have at Harvard, I decided to give my students two grades. One is the grade that goes to the registrar - that's the "ironic grade" that is based on the Harvard average. The other one is a private grade from me to them telling them what they really deserve.
