This thesis explores the prevalent forms of academic cheating In schools In Indonesia. To explain the problem's pervasiveness, this thesis examines the dynamics of students' social relationships. Analysis was done by using Bourdieu's concepts of habitus, capital, field, practice, and cultural reproduction. Three main findings from this thesis are: (i) students emphasised the important role of cheating in establishing and maintaining their social group; (ii) students were constantly negotiating the acceptability of the cheating behaviours; and (iii) the reproduction of a culture of opportunism and the practice of collectivism in schools have become elements that enable corruption to flourish.
