Proofreading anyone?

Nets for teachers

 

I wanted to finally get to reading the new NETS for teachers and found that there was another lesson to be learned.  Proofread everything a dozen times before it goes public.

njvsThis reminded me of another example of a lack of professionalism in the form of outright plagiarism.  Two weeks ago a principal told me about the New Jersey Virtual School, which is a division of the Monmouth Ocean Educational Services Commission.  It is a summer school alternative for students that costs their parents $350.  Looking through the demonstration courses on their site, I noticed that they seem to have lifted the course material directly from Florida’s Virtual School.  Did they have permission to do this?  Or are they like the students who don’t even bother to take the urls of the printouts they hand in as their own work?
