Re: “Blue Hog finds similarities between Dexter Suggs' doctoral work and somebody else's

Clearly Dr. Suggs plagiarized the passage, but that is not the worst part for students. The content of the passage in question deals with technology for students. For the most part, the technology investment made in LRSD has placed more and more access to technology in the hands of administrators while affording very little increased access to students. For example, after a large investment to connect buildings to a Wi-Fi, network, it was recently decided by administrators that only administrators will have access to the Wi-Fi network in the future. Students and teachers have been denied access since November. After a massive technology push to get one computer for every four students into the schools, go look to see where the machines are. You will find that each classroom may have one computer for the use of 30 students, but administrators all have access to at least three devices. And the final outrage came last month when it was announced that the district would no longer buy ink for classroom inkjet printers. The only access to printers for students is in libraries where they must pay a dime per page.
