My latest article in the Times of Oman website has just been published. It is under the title: Plagiarism is no different than cheating.

Feel free to visit the link above and leave your comments below on the topic.

I am sure many of you - that reside in the Sultanate of Oman - agree with opinion that is presented in the said article.

I agree with your views.

But, what if it is unintentional? As in some words get stuck in our minds and we reproduce that. Again, if there is a disciplined reading it will not happen. I do not know.

perhaps, so.

but the solution to that isn't by building upon a lie that our children are 'actually' writing something, but rather teaching them what is right and wrong in these methods that they are taught.

True.

In India, it is all the more seen; with the teachers not being a bit bothered. I guess they do the same too.

There is a need to for us to make a stand against such a problem. Or else our children will lose out on the education that they so deserve to have one day.
