More than 70 cadets accused of cheating


In the largest cheating scandal to rock the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in nearly 45 years, 73 cadets were accused of breaking the school’s honor code by cheating during a calculus final in May that was conducted remotely amid the pandemic, officials revealed Monday.

“The Honors process is working as expected and there have been no exceptions to policy for any of these cases,” Lt. Col. Christophe­r Ophardt, an academy spokesman, told The Washington Post. “Cadets are being held accountabl­e for breaking the code.”

The allegation­s that dozens of students cheated on an exam raised concerns Monday over integrity and national security at the Army’s premier training ground for officers.
