Michigan State University continues to investigate potential plagiarism by one of its professors in a school consolidation study, according to the Student Free Press Association.

"This remains a troubling case for two reasons," Senior Director of Communications Michael Jahr told the SFPA. "First, no action appears to have been taken regarding a professor who copied material from other sources without attribution. Second, even though the scholarship in this study was debunked by our education policy director, as well as the author of an earlier report that the study was based on, it continues to be treated as academically sound by some media outlets and MSU."

Here is a side-by-side comparison of the studies and a more in-depth look at school consolidation in Michigan.
