That Actually Happens…?

Saturday, January 28th, 2012 • Filed under Technology

Kids are a lot smarter than you give us credit for. I mean, just  because we want to pack six of us into a golf cart in the middle of the night doesn’t mean we don’t know it’s a bad idea…..okay, so we’re not Einsteinlings.

However, some high-schoolers in LA figured out how to use their smarts to cover up their stupidity. According to LA Weekly, three juniors had been consistently breaking in and hacking into the school computer system since the beginning of the school year and increasing letter grades and test scores. Not selfishly, of course. For a fee of $50-$300, any student could have their grade mysteriously raised. It seemed like a working success until the trio got ratted out and eventually arrested. Oh well, A for effort.
