      3rd Strike for Superintendent John C. McGee in Plagiarism Debacle

      FLORENCE, MT - Superintendent John C. McGee seems to have a bad habit of borrowing other people's work without their permission and then forgetting to give the author of "his" work the proper credit, also known as Plagiarism. Anonymous community members have discovered more plagiarism by Superintendent McGee.

      We need to hold our educators to at least as high of standards as we hold students to. Otherwise what message are we sending to our students?

    • Clare Fitzgerald FLORENCE, CHINA

      I'm a Florence resident, but I currently work in China. Americans are constantly criticizing the Chinese for plagiarism. I am appalled and outraged that this problem seems to be condoned in the American education system. What an embarrassment for Florence, for Montana! The school district needs to realize that plagiarism should not be tolerated!

      I am teaching college students, and I constantly have to keep an eye out for plagiarizing students. Their punishment is failure, His punishment is a new contract? Something isn't right about that.
