    Jail Time! For doing what every sixth grader around the world wants to
    do - improve their marks?
    Praise the child for ingenuity and his social engineering skills.  
    Scold the teacher for leaving her workstation unlocked and publically
    Sit the student down and explain to him from a moral perspective
    exactly why he shouldn't be changing his marks. Why did nobody tell
    him that he wasn't doing himself any good, and that he was depriving
    others of the fairness of the system?
    Sending a child like this to jail is NOT going to do any good to
    Obviously this 11 year old is still coming to an understanding of
    moral obligations. He saw the teacher uses the computer to change
    marks. He understands he can use the computer change his marks.
    Simple. Consequences were not considered. Of course they weren't.
    Children don't understand the choice -> action -> consequence cycle.
