Teachers question the originality of their students’ papers everyday and they have reason. An article, The Shadow Scholar, describes how many students take the easy way out by paying a writer to compose the papers they are required to write for certain classes. The East Coast writer uses a pseudonym of Ed Dante and gets paid roughly $66,ooo per year. Even students who are candidates for PH.D ‘s are of Ed Dante’s cliental. No matter what subject, deadline, or length, Ed Dante will still satisfy his customers’ wants and needs. Ed Dante explains how desperate his clients are for his services. Deans and teachers around the nation should be aware of the opportunities students have to breeze through classes with minimal effort; plagiarism exists on every college campus and it is the teachers’ responsibility to be more dubious of the papers they receive each day.
