I’m quoted in the cover story of this week’s Times Higher Education (although much of the story looks based around the long discussion we had on the telephone):
It’s an interesting feature, running to six pages in the printed version of THE (and having attracted comments on the online version).
An interesting statement is the estimate that over 15,000 customer essays are written by essay writing firms within the UK every year. That doesn’t account for the students who commit other forms of contract cheating or order from abroad.
The implication in the article is that there is no easy solution in sight, but I hope that we can do better.
