Op here. As most teachers will tell you, kids cheat all the time and badly, too. I usually write my own tests and worksheets and only write up answer keys when I need them, which does cut down on cheating. I didn't even realize I had a teacher's edition of the textbook until I came across those answers. On that day I had a family emergency and figured book work practice for an upcoming test would be fine. I did talk to the students involved and their parents. Unfortunately, several of the kids involved are habitual truants and failing my class anyway, so suspension, detention and a zero on the assignment don't mean much to them. A few of the kids involved, though they struggle, do come to class everyday and try, they just made a stupid decision. After a long (and embarrassing for them) talk with me, they (hopefully) have learned a lesson about cheating and blindly following others.

Should write "Teacher grades may vary. See me after class" on all those that attempted to cheat but failed miserably.
That's great. Guard your answer key a little better next time?
Psh, it doesn't take a ninja to cheat. All you have to do is pass notes during a test without getting caught, or copy someone's homework before class. But obviously, you're the one writing the answer down on your paper either way, so you should know if you're getting a BS answer like that. The students must be really dumb to have written 'student answers may vary' on their paper. The teacher might as well just teach them how to cheat properly, otherwise they might have no chance in life.
You failed as a teacher if you couldn't teach them properly on how to cheat.
One of my teachers were talking about the same thing a few days ago: some students had gotten hold of some answer-sheets we for some hand-ins we were supposed to do. Some people handed them without even changing the name of said teacher... The teacher said that students who cheat or are suspected of cheating will not get the hand-ins approved. As simple as that. You should try it too.
I had a student who obviously cheated on a makeup test, which was different than the original test, so the answers would not be the same. I handed it back to him and said it was not the same test so he failed and asked if he would like to retake it. He did and after that he was a model student. I could have suspended him and he knew that.
#29 I remember kids like you in school! "You don't have proof I was cheating! I wanna talk to the principle! You just hate me!" This isn't the American legal system, a teacher doesn't need to provide 3 different camera angles, a blood soaked pencil, and a signed and notarized cheat sheet to know you were cheating.
I am honestly amazed by this level of stupidity. I believe the gene pool has become too saturated with idiots because medical science saves too many people that deserved removal from said gene pool.
