diploma mills

Check out my story about bogus university credentials--and the quark jockey who'd hand enough--in the January issue of Wired. I will be posting some other resources about diploma mills in the coming week or two, but for the time being I want to tip my hat to two local television reporters who have done some good sleuthing on this topic. See Sandra Chapman series here, and Wendy Halloran's series here.

Thank you so much for this piece.

It's very inspiring that you put it out there about little known crime fighters like Gollin.

Will help spread the word online about this.

Awesome that you brought this more to light to members of the public like me.

Thanks so much, David!

This is a great article that goes after a problem that has been around for a long, long time. Unless more focus on this, it will only get worse. Not only does diploma fraud allow those who are not qualified to ascend to positions over more worthy candidates, it costs society in every way possible: ethically, morally, financially, etc...

Keep up the good work!
