Home­work Helpers

NewsChina - - NETIZEN W@TCH -

As the end of the sum­mer va­ca­tion drew near, sur­ro­gates of­fer­ing emer­gency help with hol­i­day home­work were in high de­mand, es­pe­cially those who “helped” write es­says. Me­dia re­ports said that a sur­ro­gate es­say writer gen­er­ally charged US$10 per es­say, with many also pro­vid­ing ex­press ser­vices. Many of the writ­ers promised they could im­i­tate dif­fer­ent hand­writ­ing and could en­sure an ac­cu­racy rate of over 80 per­cent. Par­ents ac­cused the ser­vices of de­stroy­ing the value of ed­u­ca­tion and en­cour­ag­ing dis­hon­esty, while many ne­ti­zens ar­gued that va­ca­tion home­work is gen­er­ally heavy and dull, and rather than be­ing of use to stu­dents, ac­tu­ally pre­vents them from do­ing more mean­ing­ful things.
