It's not uncommon for colleges to discontinue academic programs overseas for financial reasons.

"Academic misconduct is a particularly pervasive problem in China, where it infiltrates the higher education system from the undergraduate ranks on up."

Not surprising in a country where the government lies all the time. Some young Chinese students just follow the example set for them. Government rhetoric is still Cold War style bs. Believe what China does, not what it says. Same with these dishonest students- closely watch what they do, don't believe what they tell you is true.

"Academic misconduct among international students at campuses in the United States has long been a source of concern for professors and foreign student advisers alike." "Generally speaking," Fishman said, "if you have a problem this large, it's not just the student and it's not just the teacher."

It starts with the example set for students by its elders. China thinks it can makeup the truth and not abide by accepted international standards. It does this in foreign affairs, trade with other nations and what it tells its own people. The lack of basic human rights in China creates an atmosphere of dishonesty and deception.

Yes yes yes Chan. The government is corrupt, the people cheat and lie and you make money from it. You also profess not to support abortion but invest and pay taxes in China. The tax you pay, you say, supports state abortion! That's a bit hypocritical don't you think? Still amongst you other caracter traits it's almost un-noticable!

Taxes I pay to China are pennies compared to what you contribute to kill the unborn. You also have the moral responsibility to speak out against the murder of unborn Chinese females who are aborted so men can have their prized son.
A nation that lies to the world and pays you to lie on the internet reaps what it sows-

"Academic misconduct is a particularly pervasive problem in China, where it infiltrates the higher education system from the undergraduate ranks on up."

You're a liar who is paid wu mao pennies to tell government lies. Chinese students lie and cheat because that is the example you set for them. The end justifies the means- lie and cheat if it gets you what you want. Not surprising in a godless Commie nation without basic human rights.

So you are also a SMALL sad, frightened, hypocritical, lying sack of shit! Oh well. That makes it OK then!(Bout of anger to finish off! Ha ha ha ha!)

Christianity teaches that life is sacred. The 10 Commandments are our guide for living our lives. You have no guide- greed and material possessions are your god. Keep repeating China's transgressions against its people and the unborn. Maybe it will sink in to that thick skull.

If life is sacred, since you support American military laying waste to half the planet does that mean you are not a Christian? How about abortions performed in America?

"Thou shalt not kill" means what it says doesn't it?

We will make that nine commandments that are sacred for you Chan. Run the red line through "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour! Make it eight. "Thou shalt not worship thee any graven image"(etc) Oh no. seven if you have the right to bear arms. So we will scratch out "Thou shalt not kill" (Except when on Operation Iraq Liberty."OIL" for short! They are only towel heads and they have WMDs)"Six days shalt thy work". blar blar blar "nor shall thy manservant, thy maidservant, nor the stranger" blar, blar blar" Unless they are in a sweatshop out of sight.(Nice bit of bible hopscotch there! You leave out the bits so it says what you want it to say.) And again you bullshit about gods laws Chan. "gods laws" (according to god!) were given to Moses. "Christians" changed those laws and even threw out about five hundred, including one that "god" is "supposed" to have "written" herself! That is why I told you to go to visit your local Rabbi. You sad small lying hypocritical (Replace all of the former with "christian' if you wish) frightened sack of shit. Nice lie though! here comes the anger! Ha ha haa ha ha!

Mao killed 70 million Chinese and China aborts 23 million unborn a year. The civilized nations of the world fight Islamic radical terrorists who vow to exterminate the West and you compare that to the slaughter committed in China over the past 60 Years?
Hypocrite. You lie for your government and get paid to do it. You sell your soul for pennies. Shame on you.

I will remind you of your statement:

Christianity teaches that life is sacred. The 10 Commandments are our guide for living our lives. You have no guide- greed and material possessions are your god. Keep repeating China's transgressions against its people and the unborn. Maybe it will sink in to that thick skull.

And I queried that with:

If life is sacred, since you support American military laying waste to half the planet does that mean you are not a Christian? How about abortions performed in America?

"Thou shalt not kill" means what it says doesn't it?

Now if you claim not to be a Christian or if you aren't going to point the finger at China then fair enough but if you are going to quote the Bible at us it seems that you need to abide by it's teachings or risk getting called a hypocrite.

Simply pointing out the alleged practices in China and claiming a load of BS about wu mao is just ducking the question as to how "YOU" justify killing when seemingly your religion forbids it. Claiming that everybody else is trying to kill you is understandable therefore you feel the need to retaliate but whatever happened to the teaching of turning the other cheek?

Incidentally, I am not a practising Christian and anyway China's government is not "my" government - I'm just a tourist if you remember.

So answer the question or do you need more peanuts?

Academic corruption undermining higher education: Yau Shing-tung
By Guo Jiaxue (HK Edition)
Updated: 2010-06-02 07:38 Comments(0) PrintMail Large Medium Small

In China, the number of published papers in scientific journals are a critical criterion determining a researcher's professional standing and suitability for promotion. Edmond Tang / China Daily

Even at China's best universities plagiarism and falsified data are preventing the country from developing advanced science, says a world-renowned mathematics professor. Guo Jiaxue reports.

"(Academic corruption) is serious enough to keep the development of China's advanced science from success. If it weren't, I would not have taken the trouble to speak out. There is no scholar denying it in China; they are just not willing to talk about it in public," laments one of most distinguished mathematicians.

Yau Shing-tung's expression was grave. Every word spoken by the famed mathematician was as clear and definite as his reputation and achievements.

Yau, Professor of Mathematics at Harvard University, proved the Calabi conjecture at age of 27, won the Fields Medal at 34, and had just been awarded the 2010 Wolf Prize in Mathematics, making him the first Chinese mathematician to be so honored with the two most prestigious awards in mathematics. Another famed mathematician Simon Donaldson praised Yau as the most influential mathematician of the last quarter-century.

Despite his tremendous academic achievements, Yau is known for his sharp criticism of China's academic world. This was not the first time he has lashed out in public against China's academic corruption.

"It is a phenomenon unique to China. The problem is, those who are found to plagiarize and cheat don't get punished. How can others be persuaded not to?" Yau said, straight to the point.

The word "academic corruption" is a specific term in China. Usually "corruption" refers to wrongdoing by public officials. In the international sphere, the term "academic misconduct" or "academic dishonesty" is more common.

It's not just plagiarism, Yau said. There is data fabrication and other types of cheating in relation to academic exercises. Academic corruption also refers to using one's influence to be given awards, degrees, scholarly credit, covering for counterfeiters and so on.

In the absence of consequences, more researchers are encouraged to plagiarize and commit fraud. Copying the work of others is much easier than doing original research, Yau added.
