Due to rampart cheating and corruption in all part of the government, top officials in China decide on another route — by letting children proctor the exams. Why not?
Decked in blue and white school uniforms, the 18 fifth graders monitored the 265 police test-takers who are taking promotion exams.
According to the Liangzhou Discipline Inspection Commission and Organization Department, police officers were allowed to cheat previously by adult supervisors to prevent the officers from causing embarrassment to themselves for not knowing answers. What’s the point of exams if the answers were provided during examination anyway?
So what were the result of this new methodology? Of all the exam takers looking for 66 judge, prosecutor and investigator positions, the students identified 25 alleged cheaters, whose test results were disqualified.
Allowing these students to monitor the exams were supposed to help the Chinese government engage in “openness and transparency” according to the report.
I wonder if these children were being paid to do the job. Maybe this is free labor. The next logical place for these children is to engage themselves in China’s legislative process.
