Exams...Are the cheats dealt with fairly?

It would appear that teaching staff are responsible for much of the cheating, but if caught are dealt with more leniently than the students.

Aren't they meant to set an example?

Teaching used to be considered a rewarding vocation but now there are too many targets to meet. Money and success are now deemed more important than integrity and good old-fashioned honest discipline. [Discipline, old English meaning is mortification by scourging oneself.]

I would have though that the same punishment for the pupil as for the teacher would be suitable.

  Old Deuteronomy 11:12 12 Feb 2018

If teachers, the less than honest minority, know that being caught cheating will likely only result in a light slap on the wrist, they are going to go ahead and do it. They should face an automatic suspension without pay and a repeat offence should mean the sack.
