State and national media are continuing to report that a school consolidation study commissioned by Booth Newspapers appears to include plagiarism.

The Detroit News, Detroit Free PressUSA Today, Traverse City Record-Eagle, Lansing State Journal and WLNS-TV6 in Lansing all reported that the study by Sharif Shakrani of Michigan State University's Education Policy Center is under investigation. MSU has said a review could take as long as a year.

The Record-Eagle did a separate story about the study's findings on school district consolidation. Mike Van Beek, director of education policy, has found that the study also contains seriously flawed methodology.
