Dear Mara:

Having taught AP Bio. ,dealt with honors high school students, and been a
principal of the second largest hs in Los Angeles, I find your remarks to
be remarkably naive and on the level of ingenuity.  Please do not permit me
to insult for I mean no harm.  There is an old old phrase:

		Old age and treachery will overcome youth and skill.

 Congratulations on doing what you did.  The honors children and the AP
kids are fairly consistent in both cheating and other undesirable
behaviors.  (38 years of experience).  They have an over inflated concept
of their self worth and ability.    However, there are many who are "real"
humans who are deeply ethical.
