10th Grader Falsely Accused of Cheating

    [The teacher] said he had "consulted with a colleague" who also said it was impossible from the work on the page to derive those answers.
    This is a red flag to me. Appealing to some unnamed authority figure who was not present at the meeting suggests a lack of confidence or incompetence, combined with a desire to justify actions to the principal, who didn't understand the math

    And, you see, to me, this suggests due diligence, as in a check to make sure this is probably cheating before I accuse a student.

    MODERATOR'S NOTE: This thread has turned into one big debate with lots of assumptions being made on both sides. I am closing it. The OP can start a new thread to update. @Andromache
