Some students want to learn, some other students want a diploma.
Because government and industry focus on diplomas and do not look into learning. That is why government and industry want a very secure and safe system of testing. Diplomas are the key (or passport) to success and economic welfare. Diplomas are a key to prosperity and an escape from poverty.
Schools are not only institutes for teaching and learning, schools are also institutes that sell diplomas. Diplomas are very expensive, students must invest a lot of time and money in buying a diploma at university.
Cheating as teachers look upon it is bad, it is not the proper behavior for someone who is learning.
But cheating as a smart way to buy you and your family a passport for prosperity, that is another story.
