The ones that made stuff up trying to cover up their malfeasance need to resign as well. And next time, check out the dissertation. Surely we can find a competent, honest, honorable administrator for this amount of money. At this point, my guess is that the Board would be required to pay Hindt for the remainder of his contract, which extends until , to get rid of him.

Having gone through the doctoral process myself and a current professor and Ph. I am not writing this to support or to attack Dr. Hindt — just to add information so the public has the facts. I will also state that I did not look at this report closely but only skimmed. Therefore it is possible that I missed something. First, a bibliography is a list of references used in the research.

These are commonly alphabetized; therefore it would make sense that Dr. Second, a dissertation is often an original piece of research that piggy-backs off of another piece of research. Again, I fully admit that I did not look at this full report, but based on the title of the dissertations, this seems to be what Dr. And this is ok in the world of academia. If we had to reinvent research every time someone wrote a dissertation, our research would not be very productive or progressive.

It is ok if a writer paraphrases the ideas of another writer as long as they give credit. The University of Houston is a well respected research institution and I trust their faculty to provide guidance to their students. These faculty members are, in essence, responsible for the research that their students produce. I very much hesitate to attack the faculty at the U of H based on their reputation as a Tier 1 research institution.

They put their stamp of approval on Dr. I have my own opinions of the news about Dr. However, in this instance, I felt I could add to the rhetoric. I could say the same to you. You know nothing about Amy and where she got her info from so you really have no business commenting on her comment. As a professor you should understand the importance of educating yourself before commenting. I have read both dissertations front to back, in addition to the obvious plagiarism, there are also blatant mistakes like the error in the sample size of the Purdue Questionnaire Hindt cites from Houchard, Hindt cites the study as having participants when it had I hope you teach your students to perform more due diligence than you do.

Ok, this is really interesting. I attended two universities and finished two Majors, one as a Dipl. This probably means nothing to you, but thats not the Point. But, and this is important, i used quotations…. Your are allowed to use the work of others, if you Quote them right and put the Information in the context you Need and to draw conclusions.

When your are not using them…. And your cheating on all the other students as well, who made their papers with hard work, scientific studies, blood, sweat and tears and your are not qualified to hold a title for copying.

Theodor zu Guttenberg, who was a Doctor of Law and a member of the german parliament as the Federal Minister for Economics and Technology and as a Federal Minister of Defence from to Or Annette Schavan, interestingly the federal Minister of Education and Research in the government of chancellor Angela Merkel from to She resigned following the revocation of her doctorate due to plagiarism. These two examples migth be totally unappealing for you, but my conclusion to all this is: Hindt should resign from Office with all due respect to the Position he is in right now.

My friend told me anoubthis page, I see why now this is the laughing stock of the community. You are searching and digging for something to make you feel better what a joke. Sweetie, I look for good in everyone, everyday. There is no good in having Hindt as a superintendent. As I have suggested many times over the years…. The people who place superintendents, in my opinion, have ulterior motives for why they pick the ones they choose.

Superintemdent Hindt was brought here by Mike Moses. Google that name and Dallas ISD and see what you see. Another thought is that a person who is going to manage such a large number of employees should have an MBA.

Hiring former track or football coaches, or an AG teacher or someone whose only skill was teaching reading using the Whole Language method to first graders never seemed very smart to me! Mary, I somewhat disagree. An internal search will almost certainly yield Hindt 2. The search for a Superintendent should be one that has a national scope, Katy ISD has plenty to offer and we should accept nothing less than the best candidate available in the country.

We the tax payers should not tolerate a secret selection process any longer, it certainly did not prove to be very robust for the last Superintendent selected. One has to get elected to the school Board in order to have the right to choose a superintendent. The unfortunate part is that around people voted to choose those representatives. There are 77, students with most having two parents.

Anyone who has written a dissertation knows to research what has already been written on the subject and use that work to support your own. After reading through, there is no plagiarism here.

Then compare his dissertation to the one he plagiarized from OU. Suggs was stripped of his doctorate and his plagiarism is much less blatant and lazy than what Hindt has done. Your email address will not be published.

Here is how the University of Houston defines plagiarism: Using or copying research data that was the result of a study done by others without citing the source.
