A recent cheating scandal at Harvard University got Colin Diver thinking — and writing, in the Boston Globe.

Diver, a former president of Reed College, writes in an opinion piece that to prevent cheating, schools shouldn’t focus on policing students.

Rather, they should create a culture of academic honor that holds students and faculty accountable to one another and decreases emphasis on grades.
