Parents 'buy essays' for students

From BBC News:

Parents are paying hundreds of pounds for degree-course essays for their children studying at university, claims an essay-writing service.

BBC NEWS | Education | Parents 'buy essays' for students

Noooo!  That's so bad!!  The quote later on in this where it says "The students will talk about the essay they want and then they put their parents on the phone to give the credit card details"... well... grief!  What on earth is anyone learning when people do that sort of thing?!

Some articles make me turn into a ranty grumpy old woman.  This is one of them.  I sense a day of chuntering about slipping standards, lack of morals and parental weakness coming on.

I may be some time...  :o)
