State Sen. Richard F. Colburn, a Dorchester County Republican who sits on a committee that oversees education issues, has withdrawn from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore amid allegations from a former legislative aide who claims to have written and submitted academic papers on Colburn's behalf. The aide, Gregory Dukes, said he wrote five papers for Colburn last year for two sociology courses Colburn was taking toward a bachelor's degree. Dukes, 36, said he felt obligated to complete the papers to keep his job. He said he resigned from his legislative position in December after being ordered to perform those duties and a variety of personal tasks for Colburn, including waiting at his home for repair workers and coordinating the sale of baseball tickets.

COLLEGE PARK - Jake Layman has the face of a choirboy and the kind of build that would make a nutritionist throw up his hands and say: "Please! Somebody get this kid a quarter pounder with cheese! And more fries!" He's not much of a talker, either. In interview settings, he can make Joe Flacco sound like Jay Leno by comparison. But Layman can ball. And after struggling to find his game the past two months, the highly touted 6-foot-8 freshman finally broke out in Maryland's 94-71 win over Virginia Tech on Saturday.

For millions of college students, Thanksgiving marked the start of the heaviest workload of the term, with final exams and papers due in a few weeks.But thousands of students will reduce the preparation time for a full-length research paper to just minutes -- or however long it takes to thumb through a catalog, pick up a phone and read off their credit-card number.These students buy their papers, typically at a cost of about $50 for a standard eight-page paper already on file. A custom-written paper costs about $200.

Paul Chwelos teaches information systems at the University of California, Irvine, so he knows better than most the power of the Internet. And not just the way it is affecting businesses, but also the way it affects his graduate students. "It certainly gives them the ability to do better research, but it makes it easier to cheat," he said. "I think it's naive to think the Internet has given such access to information and that it doesn't increase cheating as well." So this month Chwelos joined a growing number of professors who are using the Internet to fight back.

In less time than it takes to say "copycat," a computer program can scan a student's work and determine whether a paragraph, a page or an entire project is original, or plagiarized from one or many sources. Faculty members have become just as sophisticated as their students when it comes to using technology: They can detect and deter cheating. Some professors, such as those at Georgia Tech, developed their own programs to catch cheaters. Their program alerted the professors that 187 students in two computer classes might have submitted copied or collaborated-on work.

NEW YORK -- Suppose you were rambling around the Internet and stumbled across a Web site devoted to the works of Euripides, the ancient Greek dramatist. Maybe you'd think this was the obscure hangout of professors exchanging ideas about things written on scrolls.Well, you would be wrong. You would find typical yet tightly wound college students, burdened with homework, pressed for time, cheating their hearts out with ingenuous amorality. You'd find scholars such as Jeremy, whose last name is being withheld to spare him a scowl from his instructor, in deep research.

When two Naval Academy midshipmen handed in identical naval history term papers, instructor Jessica Huckabey turned the pair in to the academy's honor board and expected both would be expelled. Two years later, the students, both starting football players, have not been expelled, even though the academy's faculty handbook states that cheating will "normally result in separation" from the school. And neither was suspended from the team, despite the academy's history of suspending other athletes for similar offenses.

MY PARENTS rarely, if ever, sat around the dining-room table doing homework with us. Homework was our responsibility, getting good grades was our duty, and teachers were the ultimate authority.The hands-off approach, I suppose, had to do with the fact that my parents didn't speak English. They couldn't very well dictate spelling words to us, as I religiously do with my children. In spite of this, or maybe because of it, we all went on to college and professions.Yet today I find myself spending incredible chunks of time on my children's homework.
