A new survey shows that most parents might not want to know the truth about cheating in high school.

Cheating is nothing new in schools, but it seems that recently it's taken a turn for the worse.

The survey of high school students finds over half cheat on tests and even more cheat on homework.

The survey found that 53% of high school students admitted to cheating on tests, 62% turned in work done by others and 72% admitted working with classmates on homework.

And students gave various reasons for cheating including lack of time, dislike of busywork, high stakes for success and clueless or unreasonable teachers.
