Remember the early childhood days? I or you were at home. Parents got ready to leave for some party. When you cried, you were given a chocolate. That was the first step in corruption in general.
How many times have you all received from elder brother, sister for not to tell something to Papa? That was second step towards corruption.
You got admission to school. Your papa told you how much efforts he had to make to get you admitted to school. You realize something seriously wrong but you move on.
On your way of losing that honesty connected with innocence, you are prompted by elder brother, sister, friends, parents or teachers to push down a competitor. You do that – come first. Innocence comes down to ZERO.
Corrupt practices have infected almost every sphere of life: government, customs, the judicial
system, hospitals, public administration, and the education system.
Proportionally, corruption in education is less prevalent than, say, in the public administration or the hospitals. But, in terms of long-term effects, it is much more destructive because it directly impacts the attitude and the work ethic of the students who witness cases of corruption and academic dishonesty in the education system and experience a limited access to – and poor quality of – education, and a social acceptance of corruption through a corrupted education system
It is obvious corruption starts much earlier than academic dishonesty. Corruption is the end product of growing up the wrong way. If the kids are not guided properly, dishonesty will become a way of life and no law or much hyped personalities will be able to control it.
