The incentives are all there for a rampant culture of dishonesty: a high test score is a magic ticket, and it dictates whether someone will have job or not, continue in school or be pushed out. In testing, one wins or dies. The obsessive focus on testing and not learning is apparently limitless, and the mindless responses will simply multiply the problem. even with a whole task force of G-Men policing the hallways.
