Cheating not exclusive

Regarding Mahdieh Javid's article, "Hoosh o zekaavat-e irooni," we should test every idea in the crucible of experience and make sure that we have considered every idea in our search for truth and in our attempt to be fair and square.

I especially liked Mahdiyeh's writing in colloquial Farsi which is now common among the youth of her age as I observed in Iran in my trips. Her style of writing is admirable and the sign of time.

All I suggest is to utilize the talents of people all over, including Iran and the U.S. to always hover around truth, impartiality and fairness to everyone when they write. For that is the only way, if not the easiest way to help our troubled world. I have tested this and I am sure that the reward of leading this kind of life far surpasses the glitter of life otherwise.

After enjoying Mahdieh's article I wondered why this young lady should write it in a way to make the people think that only Iranian students cheat. As an educator I have been involved in all levels of education both in Iran and more in the United States.

Over the years, especially since 1980 when I have mostly been here, I have come across all kinds of articles and I have observe cheating at all levels.
