China To Scramble Phone Signals To Prevent Student Cheating

There have been plenty of stories about kids in schools cheating by using mobile phones. While it’s illegal to use jammers in the US, apparently there’s no such concern in China. As students get ready for the big college entrance exams next week, apparently the plan is to scramble mobile phone signals around exam halls in an effort to prevent cheating. Of course, they’re also going to install a contingent of police to watch for cheaters as well, suggesting that students haven’t forgotten low tech cheating methods as well.
