So… there are websites designed to help undergraduates complete homework. This has been true for years. And fraternities and sororities have had archives of papers dating back decades, as the article notes. Of course professors recycle their teaching methodologies and exams year-after-year. They have other work they’d like to be doing. Nothing about any of this should come as a surprise to anyone.
Yet we should be asking a basic question, we teachers: At what point will the answers to the questions exist in a form where there needs to be no school at all? At what point will there be enough content, and enough tests, and enough material on the internet, that how we educate children will have to fundamentally change?
It seems, when I read the blogs of my colleagues of the Internet, that the answer is not soon enough.
