It’s a whole new world of “paying for someone to conduct my english online tutor class”. Why don’t we dive in and see what this is all about? This is like ordering takeout when you’re lazy and don’t feel like cooking. It may be convenient but will you actually get all of the nutrients that you require?

First of all, why would students think about giving away their virtual back packs to anyone else? There’s too much to juggle in this circus called life. We all have to juggle jobs, families, even goldfish. Also, throw in a class online that runs at lightning speed. You’d be crazy not to think about throwing some money at it.

It’s time to ask: Where is the honor code from the past? That dusty little thing you used to have? To pay another person to do the work you need done is similar to sneaking halfway into a half-marathon and saying that you have completed it. Yes, you finished, but have you experienced the entire race?

But let’s remember what shortcuts cost you. Not only is education about earning a certificate, it should also stretch your brain to new areas. When someone else does your stretching, it’s like watching another person lift weights at the gym.

However, I get it. The traditional way of learning is not suitable for all. Some people are better at learning by doing than others or may need different ways to explain things. Quantum Physics and other courses can seem like they are being spoken in another language.

Then, there’s money. It’s not cheap to attend college these days. Sometimes it can literally cost an arm and leg if books keep on getting heavier. Students often work part-time jobs in addition to their studies. This is not only for pocket money, but also for survival.

So where do we stand in regards to legality and ethics now? A stand-in to replace your education can be a tricky business. The schools are not in favor of hiring stand-ins for your education – no surprises there. And getting caught is a sure way to get into trouble.

The schools, in response to the mess they have created, are experimenting with new strategies to support and engage their students without having to resort to stunt doubles. Imagine interactive lessons and one-onone interaction with professors.

This is a difficult situation. It’s hard to reconcile the fact that students could feel like they are being pushed in this direction, but also admitting it doesn’t seem fair.

We need a new middle ground, one that will enable education systems to change without forcing their students into positions where cheating appears the only viable option.

Continue to learn. Shortcuts will only make you feel good for a short time, but the knowledge that comes from learning something genuine is what stays with us forever. The first time you master something after 100 failures, like riding a cycle or perfecting your grandmother’s recipe.

We could find a better way than looking for an easy answer. Perhaps instead of searching for a shortcut, we should look at ways to make the education process more interesting and fun. We could find a way to navigate the maze by making education accessible and fun. It’s a statistical boat we are all on together, all trying not to sink while dealing with these numerical wave.

But hey, don’t forget that stats is just numbers telling stories. Now grab your calculator, and together let’s tell some epic tales! If you can’t sleep, at least don’t doze off on the textbooks. Perhaps we need to ask people why they think that instead of judging them. Even if we find what they say uncomfortable, listening is essential to understanding.
