From the Publisher"[C]hallenging teachers, librarians, and parents to transform school culture from one that tacitly condones cheating to one that supports honesty. The book offes practical ideas and actions that can bring about this cultural change and also includes first-person accounts by educators, students, and parents on such themes as student whistleblowers and policies that support honest students."
"This book is required reading of every teacher, teacher-librarian, principal, counselor, and parent. The book's content needs to be discussed with children and teenagers….A wonderful feature of this book is that a number of short pieces may be copied by the owner of the book for use with groups for discussion, idea generation, or just plain thinking….Strongly recommended as one of the essential professional books of the year."
"Lathrop and Foss offer pithy, helpful recommendations on how to combat various forms of academic dishonesty in schools and colleges. The strategies will assist students, parents, librarians, counselors, and administrators in their quest to create antidotes to a social dilemma that is part and parcel of wider cultural ills of excessive competition and materialism. The volume, which includes useful appendixes, focuses on issues of classroom honesty, the construction and maintenance of effective institutional leadership goals, how to avoid plagiarism and support integrity in the writing process, and technological methods for sustaining honest practices. Student voices, along with those of parents and educational leaders, add particular illumination to the book….Recommended. Lower-division undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, administrators, counselors, and college librarians."
"Starred Review [T]his book is divided into broad topics such as honesty, leadership, integrity, plagiarism, and technology. In addition to essays, the authors provide pages labeled copy me. The idea is to reproduce thes pages so that groups can read and discuss the ideas and issues raised. Each page has a permission sentence attached to let students know that there has been no violation of copyright. This book is a practical guide that can help change attitudes of both students and teachers about cheating. Highly Recommended."

"This new offering is not a how-to manual for catching cheaters. Instead, as its title declares, its intent is to help teachers, parents, students and administrators work together to create institutional cultures that support honesty and fairness….Several selections are labeled COPY ME. Each one of sixty COPY ME pages may be copied and redistributed, with proper attribution, for any educational use. Not only do these pages make the book substantially easier for educators to use, but they are also a nice example of the themes of the book in action."
