Air Force Academy Hit By Cheating Scandal
The U.S. Air Force Academy, hit by a cheating scandal and other bad behavior, has asked its cadets to spend the weekend in self-examination.
The school's 4,300 cadets were restricted to campus, the Washington Post said. They were asked to spend the weekend in small-group discussions of their self-image and the image of the institution.
Lt. Gen. John Regni, the superintendent, said in a speech to cadets he wanted them to kind of look in the mirror, Whitaker said.
He told them he was disappointed with them, that honor is the heart of what we do, he added.
