Too bad it’s for “cheaters”!

My input is that these kids are not “cheating on purpose” They may sincerely look for a help and type in the question from the book or other sources… And google does it’s job to find the same question… and possibly an answer. Posted by, maybe even a teacher doing a side gig for a different website such as Brainly! https://boards.greenhouse.io/brainly. We teach students how to find answers and content on-line. Now when they look up content.. they’re cheating?
Best part of it all
is the fact that In person teaching (us, and our jobs) are wanted/needed!
