Als sie bei den Abschlussexamen einer Schule in China die Kontrollen verschärft haben, kam es zu Aufständen… weil die Schüler und ihre Eltern auf ihrem „Recht“ auf Bescheißen pochten. Klingt erstmal albern, wenn man allerdings bedenkt, dass chinesische Schüler unter 'nem so heftigen Druck arbeiten, dass sie sich während ihrer Examen teilweise mit intravenösen Aminosäuren pushen und Bescheißen wohl halb-akzeptierter Teil der schulischen Ausbildung dort sind, kann man die Cheating-Riots durchaus nachvollziehen.
When students at the No. 3 high school in Zhongxiang arrived to sit their exams earlier this month, they were dismayed to find they would be supervised not by their own teachers, but by 54 external invigilators randomly drafted in from different schools across the county. The invigilators wasted no time in using metal detectors to relieve students of their mobile phones and secret transmitters, some of them designed to look like pencil erasers. As soon as the exams finished, a mob swarmed into the school in protest.
"I picked up my son at midday [from his exam]. He started crying. I asked him what was up and he said a teacher had frisked his body and taken his mobile phone from his underwear. I was furious and I asked him if he could identify the teacher. I said we should go back and find him," one of the protesting fathers, named as Mr Yin, said to the police later.
By late afternoon, the invigilators were trapped in a set of school offices, as groups of students pelted the windows with rocks. Outside, an angry mob of more than 2,000 people had gathered to vent its rage, smashing cars and chanting: "We want fairness. There is no fairness if you do not let us cheat."
