Insourcing term papers. (Yeah, another story on paper mills. It’s a trend.)

Yet again, a fascinating story on essay mills. This one challenges – albeit by anecdata – an assumption I’d made earlier about who is paying for these papers and inverts my modest proposal about outsourcing the work to English teachers in foreign countries:

From my experience, three demographic groups seek out my services: the English-as-second-language student; the hopelessly deficient student; and the lazy rich kid.

It hadn’t occurred to me that it was Americans who were being tasked by foreign students to write these papers.
