No good deed

A former instructor blew the whistle on an English as a Second Language program that apparently tolerated substandard work and plagiarism from full-tuition-paying international students.  The whistle-blower photocopied plagiarized student papers as evidence for her claims.

She “was charged by SUU police for misdemeanor theft of lost property on Monday, and barred from campus upon threat of arrest.”

Thanks a lot, Turnitin.com

Southern Utah is not to be confused with Utah Valley, where a professor lost his job after committing such offenses as asking (senior level) students questions in class “even when they didn’t raise their hands.”
