Teach's a Cheat!

The Tokyo Metropolitan Board of Education announced yesterday that a candidate in the recent examinations for aspiring school principals was caught cheating. The 47-year old public elementary school vice-principal was demoted and suspended for three months. He was caught referring to a palm-sized "crib sheet" containing a model answer to a composition question. He claimed that the sheet had accidentally landed on his desk when he took a towel out of his bag. The exam is open to vice-principals under the age of 55 with at last three years experience. The man was taking the exam for the third time.
