MOU Plagiarized?

I see Dallas ISD schools (Broad), DC Public Schools (Rhee), ed.gov (Duncan), wallacefoundation (broad, gates, wallace) and the Harvard think tank favored by our Governor. I see these thing s after loading the MOU to an anti-plagiarism portal.

Honestly, not surprised a bit.

    John, it would be interesting to see what the shared aspects are – did they use those resources to develop the MOU. I thought I saw a resource list in the Guide, but can’t find it right now…are those the same as these documents. I would be very interested in what exactly from Ed.gov and from Wallace foundation was incorporated into the MOU. Does your software app tell you or highlight what exact parts are from what source and does it give you a more specific citation?

      Sadly, I think I have to pay to see the specific citations. Since the MOU isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on, I wont be doing that.

    check with your high school english department, they probably use turnitin.com or a similar resource for student research papers
