Exam cheats: I LOLLED!

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Minister reveals 4-point plan to beat the cheats

T HE Minister of Education, Youth and Sports Ung Huot solemnly declared four strict measures would be introduced to ensure examinations this year would be fair.

At a press conference on June 7 he said: "Firstly the Ministry, in cooperation with ihe Ministry of Interior, will employ strict controllers who

will investigate any bribery allegations. "Secondly, the Ministry pledges to be fair and just and to grade students according to their capacity

rather than according to the intervention of outsiders offering money. "Thirdly, city teachers will be sent to the provinces to monitor

exams while province teachers will come to the city. This will stop collusion between students and teachers."
"Fourthly, 30 million riels has

been allocated by the government to hire monitors to ensure the exam process is fair. Huot added: "The Prime Minister Prince Norodom

Ranariddh will also have a look at some examination centers in Phnom Penh and the provinces to encourage the examiners to pay attention

to their duties." Hout said in the past teachers only got between 4000-5000 riels in extra pay to cover their travel and expenses for

administering and monitoring the exams. He said this amount had been increased to between 10,000 - 25,000 riels, depending on the

teacher's monitoring role and travel expenses, in order to urge teachers to be more responsible.

Huot said he believed only two percent of the 80,000 teachers were corrupt and he hoped there would be a change in teachers ideas,

and they would help the exam process to be fair and effective. On May 11 the Ministry of Education warned students and their parents not

to get involved in bribery in the upcoming examinations. A press release said the government would ensure the exams would be fair and

that anyone caught making or accepting bribes would be prosecuted. Huot asked the media to publicize this message.

Considering the attitude of certain people in the country is 200 years behind, it's current.

I might point out that the problem is still very much alive, and the steps listed above have not been fully implemented.

The problem is not the exam: the problem is the culture of learning by numbers, first day at school, pay the teacher.
