Our teachers taught us sharing is caring, but they probably weren't referring to test answers.

Because everyone suddenly getting 100 percent isn't suspicious at all. A major lack of common sense aside, the plan does show how easy it is to cheat with today's technology. 

WWJ-TV reports two juniors at Anderson High School in Southgate, Michigan, admitted to taking cell phone photos of the answer key while their teacher was in the hall. They then shared the information through a group text.

The most immediate punishment: While everyone else is enjoying summer break, the entire class has to come back and retake the test. 

The school's superintendent said further consequences will depend on each student's history of misconduct, and suspensions in the fall are a possibility. (Via AndersonHigh School)
