Are You More Honest Than A 5th Grader?

In China they were having problems with cheating on police exams. The officials proctoring the tests were letting the cheating go on in many cases so as to save the officers being tested embarrassment. The Liangzhou Discipline Inspection Commission and Organization Department decided to try an experiment in hopes of reducing incidences of cheating on the exams. They brought in 18 5th graders to keep the adult police officers honest. Hopes were that in addition to the children being observant and not inclined to let things slide, the adults would feel obligated to set a better example in front of them. The children took their job seriously and caught 25 cheaters out of over 200 being tested. The scores of those 25 were disqualified.
