Plagiarism, Education, and Family Business

Last week, I spoke with the Virginia Council on Economic Education as part of its program "Does Capitalism Encourage or Discourage Ethical Behavior?" VCEE is a nonprofit whose mission is to help middle school and high school students better understand economic principals. VCEE regularly runs workshops for middle school and high school teachers who teach economics -- VCEE Workshops.

I also spoke to the Virginia Family & Private Business Forum in a session: “The Right Thing: Ethical Dilemmas that Pull the Family & the Business Apart." The Virginia Family and Private Business Forum is housed in Virginia Commonwealth University's Business School and was set up to provide education and consultation to family businesses. Its upcoming sessions are featured at Virginia Family & Private Business Forum - VCU.

When I returned from Richmond, I spoke about plagiarism with Gene Lavanchy of Fox 25's Morning News program as part of its College Week series. A clip of that interview is at Taking Measures to Prevent Plagiarism .
