MSU: 'Full Year' to Investigate Plagiarism Issue

Van Beek: Methedology 'Deeply Flawed' in 13-page Study

Michigan State University officials said Thursday it could take "a full year" to review 13 pages in a school consolidation study that Mackinac Center analysts believe contain large amounts of plagiarized text, according to The Grand Rapids Press.

Mike Van Beek, education policy director, became suspicious after comparing the MSU study, which was commissioned by the Booth newspaper chain, to the only source it cited — a 2001 Syracuse University study.

In reviewing the MSU and Syracuse studies more closely, Van Beek determined that the MSU report's methodology is "deeply flawed."
