A “good” school in a wealthy suburb of San Jose is plagued by cheating.
A student who admits down-loading material from the internet for his degree plans to sue his university for negligence.
Michael Gunn, an English major at the University of Kent at Canterbury, claims he wasn’t warned not to plagiarise and “never dreamt it was a problem.”
“If they had pulled me up with my first essay at the beginning and warned me of the problems and consequences, it would be fair enough.
“But all my essays were handed back with good marks and no one spotted it.”
Gunn’s plagiarism was caught just before he was due to receive his degree. That does sound negligent.
