Should students receive harsher punishments for cheating? Well a pro to harsher punishments is students will be less likely to cheat. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/should-students-expelled-cheating-zainab-al-hammadi The article talks about how harsher punishments such as being expelled would negatively affect a person. I disagree because first of all do not cheat and second if you're going to school to become a doctor and you have to look at notes during open heart surgery you should not be a doctor.

https://learning.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/09/10/why-do-students-cheat-in-school/comment-page-18/?_r=0 A con to harsher punishments is just you are punishing students for something teachers just will not enforce. According to The NY Times access to cheat is easier than ever and teachers just do not care enough to enforce it, which is why students cheat so much. So it would not be fair to punish students more when the pipunishments are there just not enforced so students are more likely to cheat. 

I believe there should be harsher punishments when it comes to cheating. If you increase how you would get punished and the severity of it the likelyhood of it happening goes down and teachers also have to enforce those rules for it to go down.
