I filed a freedom of information request for any emails to the district from Keith Rowland, a Principal in Douglasville, Georgia. Keith wrote a dissertation in 2008 that shows incredible similarities to Dr. Lance Hindt’s dissertation written in 2012. This evidence of plagiarism has been pointed out by more than one expert.

Katy ISD is using a legal loophole to prevent the public from viewing the message sent from Keith Rowland to the Katy ISD school board. Remember, Katy ISD School Board President claimed the accusation of plagiarism was “Verifiably False” and a spokesperson for the district said there was “zero truth to this allegation“.
Then why would the victim be emailing the school board?
And why would they not want to show this email?
It’s the same thing we’ve seen for years. Protect the bully, and punish the victims. Does the school district plan to sue every victim of Lance Hindt with our tax dollars?
