A cheating scandal in New York is big news because  this one involving state exams and cell phones.

There have also been reports of high profile cases in Houston and on Long Island of mass cheating.

But these incidents probably don't come as much of a surprise. In fact, according to a Rasmussen survey of 1,000 adults, 70 percent believe that most students cheat at least once in school and only 12 percent disagree with that assessment.

Perhaps this is because 42 percent of the poll’s respondents were willing to admit that they cheated on at least one test or exam when they were at school. How about you? Did you ever cheat in school?
