The film is based upon the events of the infamous Steinmetz Cheating Scandal that took place at the Illinois Academic Decathlon State Championship in 1995, in which the real-life Dr. Gerald Plecki and his seven students did lose to Whitney Young High School at the Regional Decathlon Championship but mysteriously won the State Championship. Later the students were accused of cheating by the State Decathlon Committee, the Department of Education, and Whitney Young (which lost to Steinmetz at the competition). It was eventually discovered that the students did cheat, although several of the students to this day maintain that they did not.
It was a multiple choice test. Nobody told me you could only pick one answer!
When Dr. Plecki and the students are watching "Stand and Deliver" at his house, the scenes from that movie are shown out of order in "Cheaters".
