Because one time, someone felt sorry for one of these dimwits and decided to help him out, and then everyone else jumped on the bandwagon and started demanding that you
give them the answers.

My son had that exact experience with college last year. Online exams are super easy to cheat on, even if the teacher uses an exam remote proctor, like Proctorio, which was what his biology teacher used. He did a test by borrowing my laptop and bringing up some online cheatsheet stuff, and then opening the exam on our desktop. Easier than pissing in the shower.
They're getting better at it, but even if they have super-secure exams, you can always just cheat off the paper textbook, if you have one. Teachers probably just assume (ass-u-me) that kids would rather use the online version of the book because they're too lazy to try and find it in the textbook.
Last spring– spring 2020– my son was taking an intro C++ class, and it had weekly Zoom lectures on Monday and Wednesday. Early in the quarter, he accidentally logged in on Tuesday, and discovered that the CS teacher was using the same Zoom meeting
for a Java class as well! So he got to learn Java basically for free, and nobody even noticed.
He didn't have the assignments, though, but he was able to find a free online Java course and got an A+.
They're getting more secure now, Zoom meetings have ID's, and passwords, and authentication, and security, security, security.
