Anthony Petrillo Mrs. Ganem Christian Morality 09/08/2010 “Plagiarism and Responsibility” Rules are made for a reason. In my opinion, the rules should be written exactly as they are meant, and they should not be bent at all. If you bend the rules for one person, even if it is something simple, it means that you will have to also bend them for everybody else. The arguments given by the parents may be reasonable arguments, but the teacher made rules, and she should stick by them. What is the point of rules if they can be changed to be how you want them? Not sticking by her policy would result in it meaning nothing. It would also diminish the effectiveness of the rest of her rules because if they got away with breaking one, they could probably get away with breaking other rules too. If the students didn’t want a failing grade, they should not have plagiarized. There is no way that they could have done it by accident. The case study states that the paper was plagiarized, “practically word for word”. They wanted to be lazy, and give no effort.
