Petition Parliament should make "essay writing mills" illegal

I believe there are important values that hold human society together: If you work hard, act with integrity, be creative and solve problems then you should get ahead in life. In my opinion, ‘Essay Writing Mills’ are not in accordance with these values. They should be made illegal.

More details

They’re online. They’re in newsagents. They’re being handed around on our campuses. They’re even on the London Underground! Advertisements for ‘Essay Writing Mills’ are appearing everywhere as this industry grows bigger and bigger. More and more students are paying these ‘companies’ to do their work for them. Profiting from selling essays in this way should be illegal. We need to hold our students and our society to a higher standard.
