Why is it essential to raise awareness about plagiarism throughout a student's education?
A lack of action against plagiarism at university can be seen as an implicit authorisation to cheat.
School provides knowledge and skills covering a variety of fields. This includes teaching citation standards. Giving college students an easy way to steal other people's work is not doing them a favour; they should think for themselves. School is where students are shaped into the respectful adults they will become.
