Hot Topic: Plagiarism

It has gotten easier for students to plagiarize because of technology and the internet. It's also gotten easier for teachers to detect with programmes such as TurnItIn. The problem is that in some countries plagiarism isn't seen as a big issue.

Sometimes teachers simply overlook it because administrators tell them to turn a blind eye. They don't see plagiarism as stealing, but like borrowing. Teachers often feel like they're fighting an uphill battle since no one will support them.

What do you think?
How is plagiarism viewed where you work? Do your administrators back you up?
