I like the first one.
The school board and the school district should be checking into these examples of apparent plagiarism on the part of the principal at Chapel Hill High School. Her explanations are unacceptable. Anyone in education is aware of the importance of citing sources no matter what the circumstances.. Some examples of her written information provided to others is not even paraphrased. I find it disquieting that neither the school board nor Dr. Forcella are commenting other than to make excuses for Ms. Jackson. This is a fine, rigorous school and the educational community inside and outside the school itself deserve that same rigor to be exhibited now.
Does Jeff Nash understand what is being discussed?
Ms. Jackson's definition of plagiarism is not the one by which my writing was ever judged, nor one which I have ever used to define this act of intellectual piracy. Any piece of writing submitted to anyone for any reason whether compensated or not which contains the unattributed words of another author must be cited for source and attribution. To do otherwise is to present those words as your own and that is plagiarism.
