Boston school principal apologizes for plagiarizing magazine column

A Boston middle school principal is under fire after admitting she plagiarized a Forbes magazine column in an effort to inspire staff.
Jaime Moody, the new principal at Lilla Frederick Pilot Middle School, said in an apology obtained by The Boston Globe she "inappropriately copied words from another author and passed them off as my own." She also apologized to the school department and the original author.
The plagiarism was discovered by a suspicious teacher who used Google to find the original, which ran in Forbes in April. Moody's memo included large chunks of word-for-word copying.
It's unclear what, if any punishment Moody will face. A school department spokesman said any punishment would be a confidential personnel matter.
A student caught plagiarizing gets an automatic zero for the assignment.

A student would have been expelled for that.

Geez, what ever happened to just acknowledging/quoting a source? They don't teach that stuff anymore? We can't all be Knute Rockne/Vince Lombardi, eh?

Which is amazing considering 75% of all people in school CHEAT academically! ----sarcasm (but true)

Cheating catches up with people as you can't cheat as fast as actually answering the f-ing questions on long, timed exams. Like I said, even if it takes until College, it does catch up.

All that BS I just said considered, YEAH - WTF man - citations....
